The 1920s were rife with Egyptian imagery. At the time, the discovery of King Tut's tomb, along with a rise in an interest in the occult and supernatural, led to a fascination throughout the country for Egyptian culture. In Dekalb, the relic left from this era is the gorgeous, towering Egyptian Theatre, which has been beloved for generations of the city's residents.
Though Los Angeles has a much more famous venue (Graumann's Egyptian Theatre), the Dekalb Egyptian is nothing to sneer it. Built in 1928 and designed to look like the entrance of a temple, with statuesque pharaohs guarding the interior, the Egyptian lends plenty of atmosphere to the screenings that are held there. No wonder people stop in for a movie so often.
Towers, sandstone, lotus designs and stained glass can all be found decorating the inside of this amazing 1920s relic. Egyptian Theatre tickets are always worth getting, if only to step in and marvel at the amazing architecture of this venue. But there's also plenty of interesting shows being screened here regularly.
