We went to this theater during the TCM Film Festival and had a great time! The theater itself is spectacular and a good place to watch a movie. My only complaint was that the seats on the main floor are rather narrow, if you're heavy they'll be tight. However the seats in the balcony are of a more standard size... More

This is a jewel of a building - one of the mist beautiful cinema ceilings I have ever seen. The programming is also very good with some excellent screenings, Q and A's etc. But be warned the staff or volunteers are not well organised and the booking systems for screenings impossible if you do not have a US bank account....

I really loved the theatre as it was covered as a part of the walking tour. This theatre has got some of the really nice artwork.

It was hyped as one of the best parties for NYE in LA - not so much. The party "started" at 9 but even though we already had tickets, we waited in line for almost an hour - in the cold (yeah, it was actually cold in LA). The main party was in the courtyard without enough space heaters, again,... More

Transport yourself back to 1922, Hollywood California. Hollywood is in its hey day and King Tut's tomb has just been discovered in Egypt. Egyptian fever has hit the world. With a seating capacity of 2,071 seats and a special appendage to the stage for opening prologues and performances, "Robin Hood" is shown at Hollywood's first-ever movie premiere at the Grand...

We were so disappointed when we went to the Egyptian theater. I had read how the film "Forever Hollywood" at the Egyptian Theater was a must see. When we got there, it was not open. Apparently, it is only open a couple of days per week and for special events. We, obviously, did not know this. I had looked at... More

During our California vacation, we attended the 25th Anniversary of the release of Ford Fairlane starring Andrew Dice Clay, which included a Q&A with the producer and Dice himself. Purchased tickets via Fandango in Philadelphia in advance, and simple pickup at the box office. Clean restrooms, fresh air, and a decent concession stand. Staff was knowledgeable of the event for...

We recently attended a celebration of Stan Freberg's 70 years in entertainment which was held at the Egyptian Theatre located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles (Hollywood). This is the second event of this kind we've attended this year at the theatre. The other one was a celebration of Dick Van Dyke. If you get a chance to attend one... More

Sid Grauman's first theater was The Egyptian which opened in 1922. If you are not careful, you could miss the entrance as it is set back from the street. The exterior of the theatre is glorious; theatres certainly aren't built as flamboyantly now - today they are crammed into multiple screens. The theatre itself has recently had a 15 million... More

Wonderful to enjoy this historic Hollywood theatre. Attend any event you can here for a taste of old Hollywood. Celebrating 92 years since their first movie premiere.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
