You can't visit LA and not go see a movie, right? Down Hollywood Blvd., just a block or two away from the mad tourist crowds, this restored vintage gem puts on a really interesting schedule of classic and new indie movies, sometimes with special appearances by big-name stars. A gorgeous spot to see a flick.

The Egyptian Theatre was built by showman Sid Grauman, who subsequently built the nearby El Capitan Theatre and Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Opened in 1922, it was the venue for the first-ever Hollywood premiere: Robin Hood, starring Douglas Fairbanks. While its design is not as stunning as the Chinese Theater, the Egyptian Theater, now run by the American Cinematheque, remains a great place to see classic movies today. The film schedule alone is usually a great selection, but they also host many screenings with special guest appearances or Q&A sessions. See their website (http://americancinematheque.com/), for a schedule of events, films and showtimes.

I had the opportunity to attend the Taste Awards as a Yelp volunteer for the 2012 Taste Awards at the Egyptain Theatre. The theatre is really nicely decorated on the outside with Egpytian hieroglyphics and drawings. The theatre itself is quite small inside but very cozy. You instantly get the old Hollywood feel as you walk inside.

Part of the American Cinematheque's single theater. The other single theater is the Aero in Santa Monica. The Egyptian is one of the few single screen theaters left in Los Angeles. You'll find film festivals, retrospective events, and special screenings with special guests stars here. It is a gorgeous theater with Egyptian art deco designs that evoke the glamour of old Hollywood.

El Capitan, Grauman's Chinese and some of the downtown theaters are better places to view classic movie theaters from the 30s. Only the Egyptian's original ceiling remains and renovation continues. However, it does give a feel for Hollywood's glory days and is well worth going to in order to enjoy the Egyptian's full program of classic films dating from the invention of the medium. Sometimes persons who starred or worked on a featured film make an appearance to discuss the film.

Reward yourself for being an early riser and catch a matinee at one of the iconic old Hollywood theaters around the corner -- The El Capitan, Grauman's Chinese Theatre or The Egyptian. Yes, you've surely driven by these movie houses on boring, obligatory tours for sightseeing out-of-towners, but oozing with Hollywood history and renovated with state-of-the-art technical overhauls, they truly are some of the best places to catch a flick, not just in LA, but anywhere.
