Widescreen Wednesdays


This is an Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!


Keep an eye out for cinema spectaculars in CinemaScope, Vistavision or 70mm with the American Cinematheque’s Widescreen Wednesdays series! While a film on the big screen is perfection for movie lovers, a film on the extra big screen is a must-see, visually-redefining experience.

Please join us for a month of Widescreen Wednesdays, which will include screenings of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, EAST OF EDEN, BARAKA, OKLAHOMA! and THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK.



Wednesday, June 2 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, 1955, Warner Bros., 111 min. Director Nicholas Ray’s awesome, mythic saga of teen disobedience and alienation in 1950s America made James Dean and co-star Natalie Wood instant cultural icons. Ray’s use of color and the CinemaScope format remains groundbreaking to this day. Trailer | Buy Tickets

EAST OF EDEN, 1955, Warner Bros., 115 min. Dir. Elia Kazan. James Dean is brilliantly cast as shy Cal, a pre-WWI teenager who can’t escape from the shadow of his perfect brother, Aaron (Richard Davalos). He is also a rebellious black sheep who will do almost anything to gain the love of his strict father (Raymond Massey), a desire that may destroy those around him, but may also, in the end, offer him his last chance at redemption. With a great cast that also includes Julie Harris, Albert Dekker, Burl Ives and a cameo by Timothy Carey. In CinemaScope! Trailer | Buy Tickets




Wednesday, June 9 – 7:30 PM

70mm Print! BARAKA, 1992, Magidson Films, 96 min. Inspired by the Sufi word meaning "breath of life," BARAKA is a mind-expanding, spiritual journey around the globe -- shot in 24 countries on five continents -- from director- cinematographer Ron Fricke (who photographed the earlier KOYAANISQATSI) and producer Mark Magidson (the Imax film CHRONOS). Filmed entirely without dialogue in a stunning cascade of crystalline, time-lapse 70mm images, BARAKA is quite simply breathtaking. Trailer | Buy Tickets





Wednesday, June 16 – 7:30 PM

OKLAHOMA!, 1955, IDP Distribution, 145 min. Fred Zinnemann directs Shirley Jones, Gordon MacRae, Rod Steiger, Eddie Albert and Gloria Grahame in this dynamic version of the groundbreaking Rodgers & Hammerstein musical. Two cowboys find love with Grahame and Jones and stubbornly deal with their feelings while an evil hired hand and a common peddler try to ruin the romance. This Oscar winner for Best Music also features astonishing, revolutionary choreography by Agnes de Mille. Originally premiered at the Egyptian Theatre which was altered significantly inside to accomodate this widescreen film. Take one of our behind-the-scenes historic tours to learn more!

Wednesday, June 30 – 7:30 PM

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, 1959, 20th Century Fox, 171 min. Dir. George Stevens. Adapted from the real-life diary of 13-year-old Anne Frank (Millie Perkins), who chronicled the experience of her Jewish family’s life in hiding in Nazi-occupied Holland. A moving, true story that families should watch together. Academy Award winner for Art Direction and Cinematography. In CinemaScope! Discussion following the film with actresses, Millie Perkins and Diane Baker. Trailer | Buy Tickets
