Locals adore this 92-year-old theater at the juncture of Hollywood and Sunset boulevards for its beauty, comfort and choice in films. The facade is ornate Spanish, the theater itself lavish Egyptian-Deco, with carved serpents and sarcophagi, inverted-pyramid chandeliers of opaque glass and, looming over the audience, busts of Egyptian maidens with Mona Lisa stares. Several years ago every other row of seats was pulled out, meaning a yard of spare legroom. The seats are very comfortable, the screen is wall to wall and the picture and sound quality are excellent. There are always first-run flicks, and they're almost always right in step with what the arty Los Feliz-Silver Lake crowd wants to see.
