    El Capitan early years

    In the early 1920s, real es­tate de­vel­oper Charles E. To­ber­man (the "Fa­ther of Hol­ly­wood") en­vi­sioned a thriv­ing Hol­ly­wood the­ater district. To­ber­man was in­volved in 36 pro­jects while build­ing the Max Fac­tor Build­ing (now the Hol­ly­wood Mu­seum), Hol­ly­wood Roo­sevelt Hotel and the Hol­ly­wood Ma­sonic Tem­ple. With Sid Grau­man, he opened the three themed the­aters: Egypt­ian (1922), El Cap­i­tan (1926), and Chi­nese(1927). El Cap­i­tan, dubbed "Hol­ly­wood's First Home...

    The build­ing was re­mod­eled in the mod­ern style, with the decor cov­ered with cur­tains and re­mov­ing the box-seat balconies. The the­ater re­opened in 1942 as the Hol­ly­wood Para­mount The­ater. Its in­au­gural film pre­sen­ta­tion was Cecil B. De­Mille's fea­ture Reap the Wild Wind. The the­ater re­mained the West Coast flag­ship for Para­mount Pic­tures until the stu­dio was forced by the U.S. Supreme Court's de­ci­sion in the an­titrust case U.S. vs. Para­mount Pic­tures, et al. to d...

These the­aters be­came Dis­ney's flag­ship houses. They spent $14 mil­lion on a com­plete ren­o­va­tion of the Para­mount, restor­ing much of the build­ing's orig­i­nal decor as well as the the­ater's orig­i­nal name.

    Don Errico Medigua is the viceroyof Spanish-occupied 16th-century Peru and fears assassination by rebels. After he secretly has the rebel leader El Capitan killed, he disguises himself as El Capitan. Estrelda, the daughter of the former viceroy, Cazarro, impressed by tales of El Capitan's daring, falls in love with the disguised Medigua, who is already married. Meanwhile, the rebels capture the Lord Chamberlain, Pozzo, mistaking him for the viceroy. Hearing that her husband has been captured, Medigua's wife Marganza and daughter Isabel (who is being wooed by the handsome Verrada) go in search of Medigua. Medigua, still disguised as El Capitan, leads the hapless rebels against the Spaniards, taking them in circles until they are too tired to fight. The Spaniards win, the mistaken identities are revealed, the love stories are untangled after Medigua explains to his wife the flirtation with Estrelda, and the story ends happily.

    In 1922, the Hollywood Lodge of the Masons relocated from their existing lodge on the current site of the Dolby Theatre. The construction of the new three-story building was led by lodge master Charles E. Toberman, who was responsible for the Hollywood Bowl, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Roosevelt Hotel and the Max Factor Building.The original building cost $176,678, with a sum of $56,421 allotted to furniture and fixtures and $36,295 for the purchase of the lot. Toberman and fellow member Charles Boag formed a Hollywood Masonic Club to partly finance the building offering membership subscriptions for $100. When the new temple opened, it was one of the most substantial structures in Hollywood. It had a billiard room, pipe organ, ladies parlor, ballroom, and lodge rooms. One writer described the building as "unsurpassed for beauty, attractiveness and richness of equipment." The architect, John C. Austin, also worked on the Shrine Auditorium, Griffith Observatory, and Los Angeles Cit...

    By the late 1970s, Masonic membership had declined, and the Masons rented out ground-floor space to a restaurant. In 1980, the lodge moved out of the building to Van Nuys and renamed the Hollywood-West Valley Lodge. By 1982, the Masons could not afford upgrades to meet revised fire and seismic codes. The Masons sold the building to singer Rosita LaBello who converted the structure into the Hollywood Opera & Theater Company. The building's life with LaBello's opera and theater company was short-lived with only a few operatic productions.With the opera and theater company's failure, the building was sold back to the lodge. In February 1986, Detroit developer James Hoseyni signed a 20-year lease with an $2.7 million 3-year option to buy with building owner 6840 Hollywood Associates, an affiliate of Westmark Development. Westmark Development at that time had Nicholas Olaerts and Thomas Harnsberger as general partners and who were owners of El Capitan Theatre by 1992. Donald Bruce Randal...

    In 2002, after extensive renovation, Disney reopened the building as the El Capitan Entertainment Centre. Disney restored original fixtures, including backlighted stone filigree, wrought iron torchieres, Batcheldertiles and old post boxes once used by Masonic officers. On January 26, 2003, Jimmy Kimmel Live!premiered at the entertainment center, its regular location.
