The Egyptian Theatre is the first great movie palace Sid Grauman built on Hollywood Boulevard back in 1922. Though not as well known as its younger sibling, the Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian has its own unique charm.
You can watch a classic film in its lavishly Pharaonic auditorium where films are shown a few days each week.
