Enjoy a day in historic Hollywood at the home of Hollywood's first movie premiere! Take a docent-led tour of the legendary 1922 Egyptian Theatre followed by a screening of the history film FOREVER HOLLYWOOD (exclusively shown at the Egyptian Theatre and featuring interviews with over 20 actors and filmmakers). See what it would have been like to be in a Grauman stage show with a visit to the dressing rooms and singers' boxes. Check out our state-of-the-art projection booth and more at this adaptively re-used historic landmark!
What was it like to be laid to rest Art Deco style? “Dying for Deco: The Funerary Extravagances of the Art Deco Period,” an hour-long lecture digs six feet under to answer that question. On display, embalming fluid bottles and other funerary relics of the period. Followed by the 1936 Universal horror flick DRACULA’S DAUGHTER. Doors open at 1:00 PM for a cake reception honoring our ancestors, who opened the Egyptian Theatre on this day in 1922.
We pay tribute to one of Spain’s greatest writer-directors, José Luis Borau, with a double feature of his films. Marsha Kinder and Marvin D'Lugo will be on hand to copies of their book on Borau, a special issue of Studies in Spanish and Latin American Cinemas.
