    Lily James stars as Cinderella in Disney's new live-action feature. The El Capitan Theatre, in addition to screening the film, has a display that includes the glass slipper.

    No matter how many times you dig through the closet or peek under the bed in a vain search for your missing running shoe or sandal, you will never, ever face the footwear-themed frenzy faced by a certain young lady named Cinderella.

    The fairy-tale icon lost her iconic glass slipper while dashing from a palace, which, really, is not where one wants to accidentally leave a shoe. Backdoor-adjacent: good. Grand staircase: drama shall brew.

    Those enchanted by storydom's most famous shoe are in luck, however: The slipper has been seen in Hollywood, at the El Capitan Theatre, where it is currently on display with other props from the Disney's new live-action film (starring Lily James as the title lass and Cate Blanchett has the deliciously divine stepmother.)

    The slipper boasts the crystal-shiny style of a cut gem and has some real-world pedigree fit for a palatial party: Swarovski partnered with costume designer Sandy Powell on the look of the story's most pivotal bit of costuming.

    We wouldn't dare dream of a spoiler here, as to how Cinderella is or is not reunited with her shoe, but let us hope the kind heroine has a better time of it than many of us do as we dash about looking for our favorite sneaks or heels.

    As for the other treats that the Disney-helmed cinema has in store? Look for "an immersive light and projection show" and, yes, a short before the film called "Frozen Fever." (Surely you remember "Frozen," the animated film that debuted in November 2013?)

    We jest, Olaf-style. The heat of "Frozen" continues to be as hot as a lovable snowman is cold, and the sweet song from the short began making the online rounds on opening day.

    It's a big time for fairy tale fans, and that big time lasts through April 16 at the El Cap. Should you wear your own glass slippers, if you have 'em, to a screening? Well, why not? Just take care not to squish any popcorn kernels or leave your shoe on a Walk of Fame star while dashing along Hollywood Boulevard.
