'Inside Out' + 'Music of Light' at the El Capitan: A Fun Outing for Families

"Inside Out" from Disney*Pixar
If you haven't seen "Inside Out" yet — you know, the Disney*Pixar animated film that's making grownups all over the country laugh and cry like babies (this grownup included) — go ahead and add that to your to-do list for the weekend.

It's really good.

For L.A. families, there's an especially cool opportunity to see the film with a live performance beforehand. At the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, "Music of Light" precedes the new animated film through August 19.

The interactive experience from 3D Live features a fun 3D light show, music and dance that will make kids want to get up and dance themselves.

Choreographed by Dave Scott, resident choreographer from "Dancing With the Stars," the show spotlights five dancers who take on the emotions featured in "Inside Out." There's Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear — and they all have their part to play onstage.

The LED-lit landscape on the screen backdrop shows everything from whirling planets, cityscapes and even forests of brightly lit trees.

CC enjoyed donning the yellow 3D glasses, watching the dancers do their thing, as well as the aerialist finale and burst of confetti at the end.

A perfect way to jump into "Inside Out" — and the very sweet short film "Lava," which plays before the feature.

We also visited the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop next door for a couple of ice cream cones and a photo op with Mickey.

Such a fun day!
