The legendary EGYPTIAN THEATER, Hollywood

6712 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028-4605
(323) 461-2020

The Egyptian Theater first opened in 1922 and was operated by Sid Grauman, who later built the world famous “Grauman’s Chinese” across the street. Hollywood’s first premiere, “Robin Hood” starring Douglas Fairbanks, lit up the movie palace with a multitude of stars, flashing lights and red carpet, which set the stage for every movie premiere held thereafter.

Renovated and reopened in 1998, through the efforts of the American Cinematheque and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre once again rolls out the red carpet and klieg lights as the new home for the Cinematheque, a non-profit film theater showcasing classic films, documentaries, independent film and world cinema.


The Egyptian Theater is located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, between Las Palmas and McCadden, just east of Highland Avenue in Hollywood. Selma Avenue is just south of the theatre. The Egyptian is a very short walk east from the Hollywood & Highland Metro Station


There are several area parking lots that charge various amounts at various times of day.

  • The Egyptian only has validation for the Hollywood & Highland complex parking lot. Validation available for the Hollywood & Highland complex has a $2 for 4 hours rate when you get validated in any shop, restaurant or theatre that is part of that mall OR use your same day Egyptian Theatre stub to receive the $2 rate. YOU MUST TAKE THE STUB to the Customer Service Center. You can also get a validation at the Egyptian Theatre stamp at the theatre. If you stay longer than 4 hours you pay $1.00 every 20 min. or a $10 flat rate.
  • PMZ parking at Cherokee & Selma (south of Hollywood Boulevard). The meter hours for this PMZ is generally “8 AM to 8 PM Monday thru Thursday; 8 AM to Midnight Friday & Saturday; 11 AM to 8 PM Sunday”
  • South of Hollywood Blvd. there are attended Grant Parking lots on McCadden Place and on Las Palmas. Parking is $8-$20 flat rate maximum. They do NOT offer validation to Egyptian Theatre customers.
