Posted on Thursday, July 6th, 2006 and updated on Thursday, July 6th, 2006 3:37 PM

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Yo ho, yo ho, it's a pirate's life for moviegoers at Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre from July 7th -- September 4th as "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," the exciting new adventure from Walt Disney Pictures and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, sails into port for a special engagement accompanied by an exclusive display of props from the film, it was announced today (6/27) by Lylle Breier, senior vice president of worldwide special events for Buena Vista Pictures Distribution. A midnight show on Thursday July 6th (sold out two months in advance) kicks off a round-the-clock, 24-hour "Pirates" marathon, followed by two additional early morning shows -- at 3:00 a.m. and 6:30 a.m -- and the day's regularly scheduled shows. El Capitan guests will be treated to a colorful array of props and set pieces from the film including cannons, costumes, treasure chests, Captain Jack Sparrow's ring, and pieces of the Black Pearl and Flying Dutchman ships themselves. Tickets for this special engagement of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" can be purchased at the El Capitan box office, on line at http://www.elcapitantickets.com, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. For groups of 20 or more, call 1-818-845-3110 for special rates and availability. Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store, located adjacent to the El Capitan Theatre, will also be celebrating the return of Jack Sparrow by offering a "Pirate's Treasure Sundae." This mouth-watering concoction includes an island of butter rum-flavored ice cream surrounded by a sea of rich chocolate sauce. Candy coated chocolate jewels, mounds of whipped cream, and a collectable souvenir bowl add to the fun. The Studio Store will be offering three exclusive "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" pins, which can be viewed by visiting http://www.disneysodafountain.com. Commenting on the announcement, Breier said, "Moviegoers and pirate fans are going to have a blast during this special engagement of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' at the El Capitan Theatre. Not only will they be seeing the film digitally projected with state-of-the-art picture and sound, but they'll get a chance to see some very authentic props and set pieces that were actually used in the making of the film. We're very excited to be celebrating this great new film from Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, and we know that the El Capitan is the ideal place to experience this amazing new big screen adventure." Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and directed by Gore Verbinski, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" stars Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley, along with a colorful cast of pirates, privateers, and adventurers. The film follows the further adventures of the mischievous Captain Jack Sparrow, this time as he tries to settle a blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones, ruler of the ocean depths, and the captain of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. Unless the ever-crafty Jack figures a cunning way out of this pact, he will be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation. Jack's uncertain future interrupts the wedding plans of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who once again find themselves thrust into Jack's troubles and travels. This leads to complications and confrontations with sea monsters, cannibals, ghost pirates, the Gypsy Queen, and even the mysterious appearance of Will's long-lost father, Bootstrap Bill.
