California Adventure's Carthay Circle Theater stands as the centerpiece of the park's 1920s & 30s themed Buena Vista Street. Inspired by the original built in 1926, Disney's replica of the storied cinema pays homage to Hollywood's Golden Age.
Located at 1901 Buena Vista Street, the Carthay Circle Theater's design was inspired by Southern California's Spanish styling and the Art Deco movement popular in the 1920s. The theater's grand entrance is framed by its wonderful ironwork, ornately painted tiles and colorful terrazzo flooring.
Just outside the theater's entrance, a Mickey has been hidden in the Carthay Circle's poured terrazzo floor. To the far right of the main doors, there is a plaque marked 1901.
The miniature Classic Mickey is located within the white strip of flooring near the 1901 plaque. Slightly larger than the width of a pencil, the marble chip Hidden Mickey is embedded within the terrazzo.
