Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre presents a special engagement of Disneynature's all-new film “Penguins,” April 17 – 21, 2019 at 10:00AM & 12:45PM daily.  Disneynature, in its ongoing quest to bring the natural world to the big screen as never before, presents its latest project to date, taking moviegoers to the far reaches of the icy Antarctic.  Narrated by Ed Helms (“The Office,” “The Hangover” trilogy, “The Daily Show with John Stewart”), Disneynature's all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.
