"The Muppets"

The exterior of the El Capitan gets many shots as the Muppet Theatre in "The Muppets" (Disney, 2011). Initially we get this run-down and abandoned version. Thanks to Linda Hammonds for the screenshot on the SoCal Historic Architecture Facebook page.

At the end of "The Muppets" we get a big scene filling Hollywood Blvd. The marquee is lit up with "Muppet Theatre" instead of "El Capitan" atop the readerboard.  Interiors are a studio set for the auditorium and the Los Angeles Theatre for a lobby scene with Kermit on the grand staircase.
