The Egyptian Theatre is one of the two homes of the American Cinematheque, the only public, alternative screening organization in town that offers such a wide variety of film & video programming from all over the world on a weekly basis!

The Cinematheque worked with the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles to develop the historic Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, as a permanent home. It is a state-of-the-art theatre within a building steeped in movie history. There is no better screen to watch movies on!

 

Sid Grauman's 1922 Egyptian Theatre underwent some restoration and renovation work in 2016 and 2017, thanks to a grant from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). Original murals in the courtyard were restored by Silverlake Conservation. Watch video here.
