'The Nightmare Before Christmas'... in 4D?!

If you're in Los Angeles, prepare to see Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas as you've never seen it before... in 4D!

Broadway World reports that for a special engagement from October 21st until October 31st, the El Capitan Theatre will show the animated cult classic in Disney Digital 3D with additional "sensory effects" to complete the 4D experience, said Lylle Breier, senior vice president of worldwide special events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Breier said, "As always, the El Capitan is your ‘Nightmare' headquarters, and this year, our guests will be introduced to the magic of 4-D. The film will be presented in Disney Digital 3-D, and there will be exciting sensory effects for our guests to experience at the same time - including wind, snow, fog, and much more. It's a way of seeing The Nightmare Before Christmas like never before for our loyal customers who have made a tradition out of seeing this Disney classic here every year."

The engagement kicks off on Thursday October 21 at 7:00 pm with opening night festivities hosted by Disney producer Don Hahn. There will be ghoulish treats in store for those who attend that evening.

The film screens daily at 10:00 am, 12:15 pm, 2:30 pm, 4:45 pm, 7:00 pm, and 9:15 pm. Special late night Halloween weekend shows will be given at 11:15 pm Fridays and Saturdays only.

Tickets can be purchased at the El Capitan's official website.

Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store, located adjacent to the El Capitan Theatre, joins in the Halloween spirit by offering a special "Pumpkin King Dinner" on select days, which includes dinner, ghoulish cupcake decorating, a commemorative photo and a special gift. Seating is limited and reservations are required.

Breier continued, saying, "We're delighted to be bringing Nightmare Before Christmas back to the El Capitan Theatre in a new and exciting way using both glorious Disney Digital 3-D and our special brand of 4-D for the first time ever. Our guests will get closer than ever to Halloweentown's beloved Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Each year brings new screams of delight from our audiences, and they love being able to see their favorite Tim Burton characters in a whole new way. The film grows more popular every year with moviegoers and we're very excited to continue our Halloween tradition."
