About the Event
The Egyptian Theatre is still under renovation, but Hollywood Heritage has created a special exhibit celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Theatre at our Museum, with actual artifacts from the 1922 movie palace - the first of its kind on Hollywood Boulevard. The extensive exhibit will include items from the Hollywood Heritage collection, as well as material from other collectors from 1922 to the end of the MGM roadshow period. This is event is for the General Public and does not include a reception.
The exhibit will also highlight the pioneers who contributed to the success of Grauman's Hollywood theatres. Our own Jesse L. Lasky eventually became a business partner to Grauman with Famous Players Lasky investing in Grauman's theaters However, their first encounter went back to San Francisco in the early days of the 20th century when Grauman's father D.J. booked The Musical Lasky's, young Jesse L. Lasky and his sister Blanche at his theater. Cecil B. DeMille (whose 1923 THE TEN COMMANDMENTS found the perfect venue at the Egyptian Theatre), Douglas Fairbanks (whose ROBIN HOOD opened the theater), and Mary Pickford (SPARROWS, 1926) and Charlie Chaplin (THE GOLD RUSH, 1925). And lest we forget developer Charles Toberman who enticed Sid to Hollywood.
A REMINDER: This event is for the General Public and only includes the limited exhibit of the Egyptian. It does not include a reception like the Members Only event on the 18th.
