EGYPTIAN THEATRE

NOW SHOWING

 
The Egyptian Theatre is a classic and beloved movie palace originally built in 1922 during the silent film era. A fixture in Hollywood’s Golden Age, the Egyptian was the site of the world’s very first movie premiere of ROBIN HOOD starring Douglas Fairbanks and remains to this day as the ultimate destination for moviegoers. This historic venue has been the home of glamorous red carpet premieres, groundbreaking film festivals and incredible cinematic experiences over the near-century it has been presenting films for audiences in Hollywood, the movie-making capital of the world.
 
The American Cinematheque re-opened the doors of the Egyptian Theatre in 1998 after extensive renovation work. Since then, the American Cinematheque has produced thousands of film events in the space with state-of-the-art presentation, including in-person tributes and conversations, film retrospectives, dazzling movie premieres, advanced screenings, and notable film festivals including Beyond Fest and Noir City: Hollywood.
 
The Egyptain Theatre Screening Formats: 35mm (including nitrate film), 70mm, and DCP.
 
Nitrate film projection at the Egyptian Theatre is made possible through the support of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Turner Classic Movies, and The Film Foundation in partnership with the American Cinematheque and the Academy Film Archive. The Egyptian Theatre is currently one of only four theatres in the United States that can project nitrate film.
