Netflix Celebrates The Reopening of Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater with a Restoration Video

Hollywood's Egyptian Theater

Netflix proudly unveils a captivating featurette promo video, heralding the grand renaissance of the iconic Egyptian Theatre nestled in the heart of downtown Hollywood. This cinematic gem, now under Netflix’s stewardship, stands as a testament to the allure of classic movie palaces. Following in the footsteps of the Paris Theater in NYC, the Egyptian Theatre marks Netflix’s second foray into owning these cultural landmarks.

Steeped in history, the Egyptian Theatre first graced audiences with its presence in 1922, becoming a legendary venue that has witnessed the glitz and glamour of numerous premieres over the decades. Personally, I’ve cherished the magic of watching movies within its hallowed walls, and with its grand reopening, the promise of many more enchanting cinematic moments beckons.

From 1998 to 2020, the American Cinematheque held the reins of this cinematic haven. While Netflix now takes charge of film programming from Monday through Thursday, the American Cinematheque seamlessly continues its legacy from Friday through Sunday, ensuring a harmonious blend of curated cinematic experiences.

For Los Angeles residents and cinema aficionados alike, The Egyptian Theatre emerges as a must-visit destination. Having relished screenings of timeless classics such as Trick ‘r Treat, G.I. Joe: The Movie, and Transformers: The Movie, I can attest to the unparalleled experience it offers. Excitement builds as the prospect of experiencing Zack Snyder’s upcoming sci-fi masterpiece, Rebel Moon, in glorious 70mm unfolds. The theater is set to host a series of spellbinding 70mm film screenings, promising a visual feast for cinephiles.

Netflix extends an invitation: “Experience a piece of Hollywood history as Netflix reopens the doors to the Egyptian Theatre.” Delve into an insider’s perspective on the meticulous restoration process that spans years, seamlessly blending the allure of yesteryear with state-of-the-art features for an immersive cinematic journey. This December, anticipate an exclusive 70mm engagement of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child Of Fire, or transport yourself to another era with a timeless classic like It’s a Wonderful Life.

The grand reopening celebration kicks off with a series of enchanting screenings curated by Netflix. Stay in the loop by signing up for updates and securing your tickets, immersing yourself in the cinematic splendor that The Egyptian Theatre promises.
