Disney’s animated “Sleeping Beauty” reawakens at El Capitan
HOLLYWOOD, CA — “Sleeping Beauty,” one of the most spectacular, stylish, and unique films in the history of Disney animation, has undergone a total digital restoration of its picture and soundtrack and will have an exclusive wide-screen engagement at Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre from August 29th through September 18th.
“Sleeping Beauty” was the first animated film to utilize the 70mm process. Viewers will now experience a brand new state-of-the-art restoration created using high resolution digital scans of the original 50-year old Technirama 70 negative along with a 7.1 stereo mix made from the original multi-channel stereo music masters recorded in 1958. An article on the restoration and screening at the El Capitan can be found at Laughingplace.com.
