Overview

The Egyptian Theater was opened in 1922 after King Tut's tomb was discovered in Egypt on November 26, 1922, and Egyptian fever was gripping the nation. Robin Hood, starring Douglas Fairbanks, was the first film to show at the Egyptian. A year later, The Ten Commandments had its premiere there. It was eventually sold to American Cinematheque, who restored it to its original glory. Besides screening classic films, new independent films and documentaries, it also occasionally rents out the theater for special events, such as the premiere of The Prince of Egypt, which re-opened the theater.
