The original interior of Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, was a stunning example of the Egyptian Revival style which took center stage during the 1920s.
This monumental state of the art facility was inspired by the traditional and historic design elements of ancient Egypt. It found it’s place into existence in the year 1922. It was designed by architects Meyer and Holler. It was the first of its kind in the United States.
The interior featured hieroglyphics, statues, and other ornate decorations inspired by ancient Egypt.
In 1998, the theater underwent a major significant renovation that unfortunately gutted much of the original interior.
However, in 2023, a partial restoration was completed, bringing back some of the theater’s original glory. This restoration centered on preserving the historic elements of the theater while updating it for modern utilization.
As a result of the restoration, visitors to Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre can now experience a valuable taste of the theater’s original grandeur.
In effect, the facility can boast of an interior which features an inter-lacing of restored and rejuvinated elements that pay homage to the theater’s rich history while providing a comfortable, enjoyable and delivering a memorable experience for modern audiences.
