Egyptian Theatre

The Egyptian Theatre, which is technically located in Hollywood, California, is also part of the greater Los Angeles area. This theater is undergoing a $15 million renovation to restore it to its original glory. The revitalization has come on behalf of the city of Hollywood and the American Cinematheque. The Egyptian Theatre and now the American Cinematheque was built in 1922. It was a start of the art theater in its day. The recent renovations are restoring its significance and adding new modern amenities to make it as glorious as before.

Historic tours of the Egyptian Theatre are offered throughout the year. Visitors can learn about the early 1922 history and why the theatre became rather legendary. Tours are $5 for adults. There is also a movie and tour package for $10. A group is not needed to participate, but just enough people in the tour to get the walk through. The box office opens at 10:30 am to sell tickets for the tour and movie. The old dressing rooms, signers' boxes, and projection booth are included in the tour. Reservations are best, so that travelers can really see the theater without running into filled up tour dates.
