This shop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios honors the Fox Carthay Circle Theatre, which opened in Los Angeles in 1926. The theatre is significant tbecause of some important Disney premieres there: The first Silly Symphony cartoon “The Skeleton Dance”, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, and Fantasia premiered there. The original theatre was demolished in 1969 but its memory, name and beautiful style are celebrated in several places in both Disney World & Disneyland.
