This weekend we got to see The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood!  The El Capitan is an old Disney Theater right across the street from the Kodak Theater on Hollywood Blvd (heart of the sight-seeing district).  They play one movie at a time (whichever Disney movie is out), and they use props, set pieces, and costumes from the movie to decorate the whole theater.  We had a really great time and kinda made a day out of it.  Here's some pics from our time:

We got there early, so decided to grab some pizza from one of the little shops on Hollywood Blvd.  This was seriously the biggest slice of pizza either of us had ever seen.  Stephen almost ordered two, but then the guy showed us how big they were and we decided one would probably be just fine :-)
Next up, to the theater!

With a stop for a picture with Mickey outside
While we waited for the movie to start, there was a guy playing all the classic Disney movie songs on an organ decorated for the movie.  It was pretty fun...a great way to pass the time til the movie started and to get you in the happy Disney movie mood.  
Then, once the movie was over, we walked down to the set/prop/costume area where we got to see some of the things used in the movie.  Most of them looked better in the movie than they did in real life, but there were a few pretty impressive items.

Then on the way home we decided to stop at the Hollywood sign and take a few pictures.
I love this view below the sign looking towards the city and the lake.
