the Egyptian was actually built before Grauman’s Chinese in 1922 and it was such a hit they decided to build the Chinese a few blocks away in 1927
yesterday was Star Wars Day so he arranged for a sweet 35mm print to be shown at the Egyptian
we sat next to Princess Leia in the balcony
she introduced us to this nice Jedi jentleman
speaking of Jedi’s, because its Hollywood, Luke Skywalker showed up and told us everything
the ceiling of the Egyptian reminded me of Jabba the Hut’s trap door, but you know, on a ceiling
we had a great time. thanks Chris for getting the tix and Geoff Boucher for doing these cool film deals.
oh and George Lucas for changing things up a little after American Graffiti.
