3D? Pshaw! Disney screening Nightmare Before Christmas in 4D!

Oct. 12, 2010by: Mike Sampson

Every year Disney rereleases A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS in 3D for two weeks around Halloween. I've never been to one of these revival screenings but I imagine it's a lot of crowd participation, singing along, cheering, etc. But the audience's involvement in the film is about to get even deeper. Disney announced yesterday that later this month, the film will be screening at the El Capitan theater in Los Angeles not just in 3D but in 4D.

It is the first time the El Capitan will screen a 4D movie and to enhance the 3D experience it will add an extra dimension with fog, wind and other surprises they're not ready to give away just yet.

In addition to the 4D screenings, NIGHTMARE composer and frequent Tim Burton collaborator Danny Elfman will actually be performing a mini-concert prior to the October 22nd screening at 7pm.

UPDATE - So it turns out the LA Times had its info incorrect with the announcement. Elfman is playing on OCTOBER 21 and not the 22nd, which means the show is NOT sold out. Also, Elfman will not be performing but will be appearing and introducing some bonus features from the upcoming Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box."

So how do you get in on this? Tickets are available at the online box-office but I'll disappoint you now by saying tickets for the Elfman screening are already sold out (Ebay, perhaps?). Tickets are still available though for many of the 4D screenings though so that's always a solid consolation.

Extra Tidbit: Does it make me sound old to admit that I saw NIGHTMARE its opening weekend in 1993?

Damn..

....so many haters. I have yet to see this in 3d, though Ive been meaning to since they stared doing this. Bottom line, for all you haters, whether you like it or not this movie was the defining film for a generation. This film was bold and new with a hint of familiarity to it. I first saw it when I was 6, Ive been hooked ever since. And fuck hot topic, it couldnt exist without this movie. I know lots of people who love this film but dont sport any of the bullshit merchandise. I plan to make it

It's an okay movie, but I'm not interested in going out of my way to see it again.

Oh wow.

Not only has stuff like this been done (and...it's not 4D), but this is stupid.

Nah, you're not old. I remember seeing Nightmare Before Christmas on its opening weekend in 93' with my dad when I was 8. I also remember my dad complaining that he had to pay $7.50 (combined) for both of us to see it. Haha! If only he knew how bad movie ticket prices would get years later...

I guess that makes me old when I saw 'Aliens' in the theater with my mom when it came out...I was only 9 years old. Or even better, I saw ET in the theater when I was 5. Or even better than that, Elvis was still alive when I was born and Star Wars Episode IV was released in the theater a week before I was born. Damn, maybe I am starting to get old.....

Disney no!

I share this huge love, hate relationship with this movie. Growing up when it came out in theaters, the first time mind you, I loved it. Hell I still even watch it every Thanksgiving. However, franchising is killing this movie for me. I am so damned sick of constantly seeing merchandise, hearing about it, seeing teeny boppers dance to emo music wearing the characters... Do I need continue?

Not at all

I remember seeing it a few times in thetres in back '93.

Hell, I saw Jurassic Park in theatres a few times in '93.

I miss those days... You know, when you could afford to see a great movie more than once with the family.

4D sound fun!
