    This Egyptian revival theater was developed by Sid Grauman and Charles E. Toberman in 1922 to accommodate the growing population of Los Angeles.

    A lavishly designed movie theater from the more glamorous days of Hollywood; motifs inspired by ancient Egypt. Fell into disrepair and recently restored, but still elaborate inside and out.

    Love Indie film? Why not check out Indie online radio. We play commercial free handpicked global lounge grooves. 24/7. Great for a chill night at home, dinner parties or the work place.

    I'm all about the balcony. The Miyazaki films being shown Feb 2012 are wonderful! $9 student tickets is a steal (even if you haven't been a student for a few years).

    The best place to sit is the balcony. Get there early so you don't have to stand in line with all the latecomers!
