When UA opened the Egyptian II & III next door in 1972, it opened with “Skyjacked” & “The Carey Treatment” in #2 and “The French Connection” & “The Detective” in #3.

Life’s too short….The interior photo is incorrectly attributed to the Egyptian Theatre Hollywood. It is actually a photo of the interior of Peery’s Egyptian Theater, Ogden, Utah, which has a page on CT here: /theaters/238/

I am confused.

About 1/3 of the way down on this page is an interior photo with caption of Hollywood Egyptian:

However, I was under the impression that they did not put the original stage archway back during renovation. Can anyone clarify?

I suppose, if you were prescient enough to know about the series. Otherwise it might come and go, and you would miss Earthquake, one of my favorites.

It’s disaster movie week at the Egyptian! Friday night is Poseidon Adventure, the original. Saturday is Earthquake in Sensurround. The rest of the films are Towering Inferno, China Syndrome, Black Sunday and Hindenburg. Go on the American Cinematheque site for more info and tickets.
