I’m spending the weekend at the Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Blvd, watching classic movies at the annual Cinecon film festival/convention. Imagine my surprise today when I looked at the El Capitan Theatre marquee and saw it advertising Arjun: The Warrior Prince – a film we discovered Disney had picked up back in May (the film, a joint collaboration between Disney and UTV Pictures, was directed by Arnab Chaudhuri).
The El Cap is currently playing an Oscar-qualifying engagement of the new Tinkerbell direct-to-video, Secret of the Wings. Apparently Arjun will begin playing each night, at 9:20pm, to also qualify for Academy consideration. The showings begin this Monday night and will run through next Sunday September 9th.
