Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing how the recently announced closure of the Arclight Cinemas & Pacific Theatres chain may impact the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. They then talk about a pair of pachyderm-based animated features that never made it into a theater near you.

Where you’ll have to go if you want to encounter the characters from SPA’s “Hotel Transylvania” & “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” movies in a water park environment

What aborted Disney animated features inspired the “Pines of Rome” sequence in “Fantasia 2000”
