Came for a Q&A for the cast if Why Him? and the movie and Q&A were awewome. I'd only suggest that in the future the big screen show the actors being interviewed so that everyone could get a good look at them.

Beautiful place, a concessions area a little expensive but it's to support the renovations of a historic building so I don't mind. They play a wonderful selection of classics and new movies which I am beyond all the way.

Classic Hollywood at its best. American Cinematheque combines Hollywood's 95 year-old Egyptian Theatre and the 75 year-old Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. The Egyptian was built in 1922 by Sid Grauman and held Hollywood's very first Red Carpet premier event. Grauman then sold the Egyptian and built the Chinese Theatre and the El Capitan a few blocks west from the Egyptian on Hollywood Blvd. Google American Cinematheque, Egyptian Theatre or Aero Theatre and you'll get to the same results. Membership is tax-deductible and tickets are $7 instead of $11 per ticket and include 4 free vouchers, free member-only screenings, pre-sales and member priority check-in for big events. Volunteer openings always available.
