Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! The 1992 live-action Disney hockey hit “The Mighty Ducks” is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than by attending a special screening of the family classic?
Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre (flagship home for many of Disney’s new releases and revivals) is hosting a “Throwback Thursday” event just two weeks from now featuring the Emilio Estevez-starring sports movie that launched several sequels, an animated television series, and even an actual real-life hockey team.
The Anaheim Ducks (formerly The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim) and their mascot Wild Wing will make this an evening to remember by leading a pep rally prior to the start of the show. Original “The Mighty Ducks” cast members Aaron Schwartz (Dave Karp) and Matt Doherty (Les Averman) will also be making appearances on-stage.
The movie will also be preceded by Walt Disney’s 1939 classic Donald Duck animated short “The Hockey Champ.”
“The Mighty Ducks” 25th Anniversary Throwback Thursday screening will be held for one night only at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 19th at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. Be sure to visit the theater’s official website for more information and advance ticket sales.
