Special Preview Screening of Legend of Tarzan
This event is in conjunction with the release of the Warner Bros. “Legend of Tarzan” and we will receive an early pre-release showing of the highly anticipated film on the Warner Bros. movie lot. The WB theater can accommodate only 200 guests. The film is rated PG-13. Children under 10 will not be admitted. Movie lot security requires everyone in attendance to have pre-registered and present an ID upon exiting the bus due to security requirements at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. will also open their WB museum for a two-hour tour, but we are limited to just 110 people. There is an extra charge to go on the tour. Bus transportation will be provided to carry guests from the Marriott hotel to and from the Warner Bros. movie lot in Burbank.
There is a two tier registration fee.
OPTION A: $85: Includes ECOF admission, bus transport, movie, goodie bag, WB studio tour.
