It will be called Discoveryland Theatre from now on and it will host previews of upcoming films.


What? How boring. It was Honey I Shrunk the Audience the first time I went and was closed last June so I've not seen Captain EO


Surely it would be more fun if they played actual films that have been out for a while.
It's not like Disney has a shortage of movies.


That's slightly better, but still a waste of the space. It needs redeveloping into either something unique or a copy of a great attraction from another park. The screen in Café Hyperion could be used for movies without much effort, and would actually attract a few people (surely more than it does now)


I don't know if it's a temporary solution or it will be used later for the expansion of a Star Wars area, but it will be a preview theatre until 2017 for sure.
