The Egyptian cinema Theatre’s architecture is impressive.
The lobby of the cinema theatre is a stately, calm space that evokes ancient Egypt. Its exterior is clad in terra cotta and features a 20-foot tall stained-glass window and two enormous pharaohs guarding the entrance. The theater’s interior features a sky-blue ceiling and an ornate facade with carved columns and a model of the Sphinx.

In the fifties, the Egyptian Theater began to specialize in movies and occasionally featured live events, such as concerts. In October 1959, John F. Kennedy appeared in front of a packed house and announced his candidacy for president three months later. In the sixties, the Egyptian Theatre was still primarily a movie house, but it was now home to the oldest theater in DeKalb County. Its history is replete with fascinating stories, which can be traced back centuries.
