Shang-Chi at El Capitan Theatre
In addition to a unique opportunity to meet the director of Shang-Chi on the night the movie opened on screens across the United States, those who attended the opening day event at the El Capitan Theatre also enjoyed perks like special photo ops featuring the characters from the movie.

According to the Marvel article, the main characters of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings were well represented, with cosplayers appearing as Shang-Chi, Wenwu, Xialing, and others.
More Opportunities to Come
And consider this, Marvel Blog True Believers: with the close proximity between the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, it’s possible that an Avenger-in-training could visit both the movie theater and Avengers Campus in a single day…
That’s something to think about for the next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie premiere, Marvel Blog True Believers! I once attended a Thor premiere that way… just saying.
We certainly don’t know if the next MCU movie premiere at the El Capitan will have a surprise guest, but we do know that the Disney-owned theater always pulls out all the stops when one of the Marvel Studios blockbusters is premiering… if nothing else, you can get a few scoops of ice cream from Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop after the movie (which would be especially appropriate for Shang-Chi, which features the original store in one of its action sequences).
