The Egyptian Theatre at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard was designed by architects Meyer & Holler for Sid Grauman. It opened in 1922 with the first-ever Hollywood movie premier, Robin Hood with Douglas Fairbanks. It was the first of many theatres built by Sid Grauman, who opened the Chinese Theatre a block west a few years later.

American Cinematique offers film-festival-style offerings all year long and tours of the Egyptian Theatre once a month. Visit the Egyptian Theatre web site for more information.
