Egyptian Theatre Re-Opens

NPR's Renee Montagne reports from Hollywood, where the newly restored Graumann's Egyptian Theatre reopens tonight. It was Hollywood's very first movie palace, decorated in the Egyptian motif, when it first opened in 1922. The theatre is home to the non-profit American Cinematieque, which will screen Cecil B. DeMille's The 10 Commandments, tonight, exactly 75 years after that movie premiered at the Egyptian theatre.
