  Egyptian Theater

Although the attached website says that the Egyptian was renovated and reopened in 1998, I took the attached photo from behind a barricade so there is still obviously some work going on.

The Egyptian was Sid Grauman's first movie palace in Hollywood and the venue for the very first movie premiere, Robin Hood starring Douglas Fairbanks.

It was closed in 1992 and according to the website reopened in 1998. There's a much better picture of the facade on their website, the barricades made a good picture impossible for me.

The website says they are still showing movies there and I imagine with an infusion of $15 million that the interior was renovated pretty nicely so if you have a little extra time maybe you can catch a movie in one of the classic old time movie theaters in Hollywood.

Located at 6712 Hollywood Blvd.
