The Egyptian Theatre – 1921

The Egyptian. 6712 Hollywood Blvd. 1921. Meyer & Holler, architects
The first of Sid Grauman’s Hollywood Boulevard theatres, the Egyptian’s styling was the result of the American fascination with the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1920. The theatre opened in 1922 with the premiere of Robin Hood starring Douglas Fairbanks Sr.
