About American Cinematheque (Aero Theatre, Egyptian Theatre)
You never know who you might run into at American Cinematheque. The duo of cinemas—Aero Theatre and Egyptian Theatre—are hotspots for visiting filmmakers premiering their movies or participating in retrospectives. A relic of the glamorous past, the Egyptian Theatre was built in 1922 and inspired by the search for the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. From its first showing of Robin Hood until today, it has operated as a movie house, and now sends 60-foot-wide images and crystalline sound flashing through the ornate mirage of its interior.
At both theaters, guests can take in an ever-rotating schedule of flicks that includes classics and new foreign films fresh off the festival circuit, as well as opportunities to hear filmmakers talk firsthand about how they turned previously unknown actors into beautiful CGI sunsets.
