D23 presents "Disney and Dickens"
Thursday, December 10, 2009
Join Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and your fellow D23 members for an evening of Dickensian delights as you meet at the historic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood to experience the new Robert Zemeckis film Disney's A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carey, Bob Hoskins and an all-star cast in this new retelling of Charles Dickens' timeless holiday favorite. As you settle into your reserved VIP seat, enjoying tunes from the mighty Wurlitzer, the festive holiday pre-show and the film itself, make sure you don't get too full from the complimentary popcorn and soda because following the movie, you'll re-join the group for a holiday feast at the classic Los Angeles eatery, the Tam O'Shanter in the city's Los Feliz area.
The Tam O'Shanter was a favorite restaurant for Walt Disney and his animators, and was often referred to as the Studio Commissary when Walt's fledgling company was located in the neighborhood. From the moment you pull up to this quaint, cottage-like Scottish establishment, you will be transported to another time and place. Decked out in its holiday finest, the Tam is a cozy, traditional Scottish restaurant where Christmas goose and succulent prime rib await. As you dine with your fellow D23 members and their guests, you'll have the opportunity to see Walt's table, take a look at the wonderful artwork created by Disney animators for the Tam, and be entertained by Dickens Carolers, as well as an ensemble from the Disney Employee Choir, who will sing their favorite Disney Christmas songs.
So come with your appetite and warm up your vocal chords, because this will be anything but a silent night. Oh, and don't forget that Christmas is a time of giving and your friends at D23 would never let you leave without a special holiday gift to commemorate the evening!
