Buckle up, baby! The day has finally arrived. “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is in theaters now, and as always there’s no better venue to see it at than El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. Not only does this historic auditorium offer a top-quality cinematic presentation with state-of-the-art picture and sound, but there are a ton of astoundingly fun “Star Wars” bonuses in store as well.

During the opening-night festivities for “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” El Capitan Theatre had guests meeting, greeting, and posing for photos with Chewbacca and Imperial Stormtroopers, a costume contest on stage, and a extensive (not to mention impressive) costume and prop display on the theater’s lower level– a display that included an up-close look at Lando Calrissian‘s collection of cool capes!
