You wouldn’t imagine that one of Hollywood’s oldest theaters is also one of the best, but the newly renovated Egyptian Theatre upgraded the landmark without tarnishing the beautiful 20th century accents. The gorgeous building was extremely expensive for the era in which it was built. The original blue prints had the building being styled as a Hispanic villa, but with the uptick in historical interest in Egyptian lore, the building was changed to an Egyptian theme at the last minute. The luxurious old building still has many showings of popular and more offbeat films, and the upgraded sound and projection system is top-of-the-line. Now owned by American Cinematheque, there are guided tours offered on most days.
One of the most enchanting parts of the Egyptian Theatre is the dramatic courtyard that leads to the box office. Originally this was designed to accommodate the elegant award shows and premiers, but today it simply is a historical reminder of the days past, as well as a great place to stop and people watch.
When visiting an iconic Hollywood building, it’s only appropriate to drive an equally luxurious and memorable vehicle. The 2014 E63 AMG S-Model 4MATIC Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is a perfect machine. The embodiment of luxury meets performance.
