Come dressed as your favorite pharaoh or dancing maiden for this screening of Howard Hawks' Egyptian epic with lavish art direction by Alexander Trauner (THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, CHILDREN OF PARADISE, THE APARTMENT). What better place to see it that on the Egyptian Theatre's grand screen? A multimedia presentation on the career of designer Alexander Trauner and a brief overview of the Egyptian-style Hollywood epic (15 min.) will precede the film.
