FIRST LOOK: New Spotlights Bring “Premiere Night” Every Night to Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley took to Instagram to share some exciting news regarding the iconic Chinese Theatre. A new LED lighting package will bring “premiere night, every night” to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This is a culmination of years of work by our teams to bring “premiere night, every night” energy to this iconic golden age of Hollywood architecture. I love when our teams are able use their unique skills to enhance the stories within our parks and this definitely showcases what our Imagineers ingenuity.

The new lighting features gold accents and LED bulbs. Riddley is most excited for the return of the rooftop spotlights.

But the part I am really excited about is the triumphant return of spotlights searching the sky as the theatre welcomes guests to the premiere of the latest Mickey Mouse short at Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

In this still from Riddley’s Instagram video, we see the spotlights reaching to the sky. The lights behind the theatre’s neon marquee were recently upgraded.

Disney is also adding new lighting effects to Spaceship Earth at EPCOT.
