Red Carpet Premiere of Pete’s Dragon and a tour of the El Capitan Theater #PetesDragonEvent

Pete's Dragon REd carpet premiere

Being invited to a red carpet event is such an honor. The fun that is to be had is unparalleled. There’s nothing for me to compare it to. You get to see so many celebrities doing their mom or dad thing with their kids. I just love it. So why not sit back and visit the red carpet event with me in my post and beautiful pictures. Disney invited me out all expenses paid to cover this event for you.

The party starts like all parties do with us getting ready for the big event. At this point in the day we’ve already put in a full day of interviews and pretty tired and jetlagged. But we push through and we head back to the hotel to get beautiful for the fun on the red carpet.

At the party we were able to see lots of celebrities. I am not a huge celebrity fan that’s going to track them down and get their pictures. I’m too much of an introvert that way. However I did see quite a few though. Throughout the night I saw Brooke Charvet, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Patton Oswalt, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jason Mara, Peter Krause, Howard Stern, the kids from Stuck in the Middle and the kids in Best Friends Whenever. It’s so fun to be in a situation where I can just hang out around them. There’s always a lot of great food and fun activities. Check out my tattoo I got while on the red carpet!

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”), Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (“Cedar Rapids”) and OscarĀ® winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a screenplay by Malcolm Marmorstein and produced by Jim Whitaker (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.

While we were in town we got to tour the El Capitan Theater.

It was spectacular. El Capitan is where they hold a lot of movie premieres and really is an anchor to downtown LA. Check out my photos.

Our names on the Theater sign.

What a wonderful welcome they gave us. El Capitan has an organ and organist that comes up out of the floor and he plays for you before the film begins. Here’s a fun pic of all of us bloggers gathered around the beautiful organ.

The theater from 1927 to 1941 was for live theater. The actors had to come there to hone their craft. Once the movies began to be released they changed it over to a theater for movies. I believe they said it was around 1946. In the 1980’s they took the theater back to its roots by scraping all the paint off and restoring it to the brilliance of the first days. It’s really a beautiful theater. I love the marquis out front. I was at the Good Dino premiere here and now for Pete’s Dragon. What a lovely experience.

So tell me have you ever been to a premiere? Do you remember watching Pete’s Dragon or will you see this one?
