Visit the EGYPTIAN Theatre

The Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian in Hollywood has 616 seats, so there are usually plenty of tickets at the door. If you arrive one hour before the first show of the evening, you can usually get a ticket the night of the screening. Sometimes we do sell out when we have special guests or a sneak peview, so early arrival is always recommended. Some shows are in the 78-seat Steven Spielberg Theatre. The name of the theatre where each show is located will be listed on the printed calendar and on the website, so that you can plan accordingly.

Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian, 616 seats
Steven Spielberg Screening Room at the Egyptian, 78 seats

Between Las Palmas and McCadden Place, just east of Highland Avenue. Close to Metro Red Line (Hollywood & Highland station) and the 101 Freeway. The Hollywood DASH bus stops nearby, as do the 212, the 217, and the 222 lines.



There are several area parking lots that charge various amounts at various times of day. They range from $10 – 20. Try the Classic Parking lots at 1609 N Last Palmas and/or 1634 N Las Palmas.

The Blessed Sacrament Church parking lot on Selma Avenue is often available (check closing time if you plan to stay late) and spaces cost $10.

The Egyptian does not validate for any parking lots, nor does it have its own parking lot. Always verify if you are being charged a flat or hourly rate when you pull into a parking lot. Some signage is deceptive.

While the Egyptian Theatre does not validate for the Hollywood & Highland complex, businesses in the complex will validate when you make a purchase. We recommend visiting the Hollywood & Highland website for current information. Prices, validation duration and other factors are subject to change at any time without the knowledge of the American Cinematheque.

Parking meters are available on Selma, Sunset Boulevard and other surrounding side streets. Read meter signs carefully, as many have one-hour limits and are enforced until 8pm or later on side streets near the theatre. Construction in the area may prevent parking on some streets.

Films will let out after the hours of operation of certain parking lots, so plan accordingly.

Take Metro

Metro provides Bus and Rail transportation to the Egyptian Theatre located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, walking distance from the Metro Red Line Hollywood/Highland Station. For your best route or more info, visit the Metro Trip Planner or call (323) Go Metro or (323.466.3876).


The theatre is ADA accessible. Easiest (flat) access is from Hollywood Boulevard. Elevator to balcony. Wide ramps.


For ADA compliance, the Egyptian, both Rigler and Spielberg auditoriums, are equipped with ALS / Hearing Assist headsets for all analog Film / Digital / Live P.A. presentations.  The headsets amplify the volume of the soundtrack and/or live P.A. feed.

For DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) that are equipped with Audio Descriptive and Closed Captioning tracks, we meet requirements for DCI Compliance with Audio Descriptive Channel and Cup Holder Mounted Closed Captioning Receivers.  For Audio Descriptive Channel, headsets provide a separate track that describes the movie, in addition to the actual soundtrack.  For Closed Captioning, a cup holder-mounted device displays the CC track.  (Audio Descriptive and Closed Captioning are not available for analog Films screenings.)

Audience members can request this equipment (either headsets and/or Closed Captioning devices) at the box office, and the manager on duty will assist them and provide instructions on the equipment's use.
