Cinderella (Three-Disc Diamond Edition: Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy), the newest edition of Disney's Cinderella on DVD, will be released on October 2nd. Part of the push for the new DVD includes a limited engagement of the film at El Capitan in Hollywood, CA.
From Bibbidi Bobbidi Hollywood:
Likewise Disney's "Cinderella," which twirled into cinemas in 1950, is pretty much the proto-"Cinderella" film. Is it hard not to see the heroine in a light blue dress in your mind? That one-of-a-kind pumpkin carriage? Or good-natured Gus Gus? Oh, great cheese, we love that roly-poly little mouse.
Now the fairy tale movie to which nearly all later fairy tale movies owe so much is back on the big screen for a limited time. See it at the El Capitan on Hollywood Boulevard through Thursday, Aug. 30.
Like with all El Cap screenings, there are entertaining extras: Christian Louboutin will have a slipper on display at the theater, and Cinderella herself will cameo before each screening.
Now, if only we had a fleet of friendly birds who could help us put together our outfit for the day, we would be set. We don't even need the whole glass slipper thing. Just the helpful bluebirds to tell us what to wear.
I've seen a few movies at El Capitan and it is a treat of a theatre, so if you are in the Hollywood area, you may want to go and see the film. Then you can see the Louboutin slipper we've discussed here on SurLaLune, too. As for the rest of us, there will be the new release of the DVD, of course, in just a few months.
