Upcoming programs include films that originally premiered at the Egyptian, including ROBIN HOOD starring Douglas Fairbanks, the film that opened the Egyptian on October 18, 1922 (and will screen this year on the anniversary of its premiere, October 18th), and films that originally opened here, including WAIT UNTIL DARK, SOUTH PACIFIC, HOLLYWOOD CAVALCADE, MY FAIR LADY, and more! Save the date, October 20, 2012 for the Egyptian’s 90th birthday party, a 1922 Egyptian Masked Ball which will include 1922 films, live vintage music, dancing, and more!

4-Day Engagement!

Join us for a four-day run of new documentary BETTER THAN SOMETHING: JAY REATARD. Shot just months before his untimely death, this intimate portrait of the controversial and prolific garage rock icon Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr. - better known to the world as Jay Reatard - interweaves cinéma vérité, interviews, archival concert performances and scenes from an insightful and candid week spent with Jay, who reveals personal childhood stories and the struggles of life in Memphis.

Thu, Mar 8, 2012 - Sun, Mar 11, 2012

Presented for your big-screen pleasure, is the work of the best comedic quartet in film history: the Marx Brothers! Included in our heartily hilarious series are MONKEY BUSINESS, A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, THE BIG STORE, A DAY AT THE RACES, ROOM SERVICE, ANIMAL CRACKERS, DUCK SOUP and THE COCOANUTS.

Because Marx Brothers movies were meant to be seen in theaters with an audience, their immaculate timing isn’t done justice when screened at home on DVD. Indulge in an all-you-can-laugh riot, and be sure to bring the whole family!

Wed, Mar 7, 2012 - Wed, Mar 28, 2012

Italian director Sergio Leone began his career with the sword-and-sandals opus COLOSSUS OF RHODES in 1961. In 1964, inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s YOJIMBO, Leone helmed A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, which starred then virtually unknown Clint Eastwood, followed by its sequel, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, and the majestic conclusion of the trilogy, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. This month's retrospective also includes ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and the tragicomic DUCK YOU SUCKER (aka A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE).
