OF FILMS AND PHARAOHS – 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EGYPTIAN THEATRE

It isn’t often you get to attend the 90th anniversary of a landmark building. Especially one that was the home of the very first Hollywood premiere- Robin Hood featuring Douglas Fairbanks.  The Egyptian Theatre is a beautiful landmark in Los Angeles.  Influenced by the fascination with all things Egyptian at that time, including the 1922 discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb, it is a lovely building of Hollywood’s golden era.
The evening was packed with silent films, dancing, a fashion show, belly dancing, mystics, Middle Eastern food and cocktails.  We had a wonderful time and got to catch up with several friends that evening.

Even if you couldn’t attend the event, you can go to the theatre and see classic films most days of the week and sit under the scarab that Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin sat under, so they say at the Egyptian.  It is a treat not to be forgotten.

    I love that theater. I so wanted to go, but I was cursed with the Alexandrian flu or something. Everybody looked great!!!

  3. What a swoon-worthily marvelous evening. I adore everyone's ensembles, very much including your gorgeous black dress and t-strap shoes. Timelessly chic and oh-so-beautiful indeed!
