SCHEDULE (Egyptian by series)

SCHEDULE (Egyptian by date)







616 Seats! State-of-the-art projection & sound!

Wait until you see a movie on our giant screen! We are a Kodak Screencheck (tm) certified theatre. That means you won't have a better viewing/listening experience anywhere! See movies the way they were meant to be seen!

The Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian is 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, so early arrival is always recommended. Some shows are in the 78-seat Steven Spielberg Theatre. This will be listed on the printed calendar and on the website so you can plan accordingly. The American Cinematheque's acclaimed programming is now also available at Montana Avenue's Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.

Fandango Tricks & Tips:

We need your help to troubleshoot on - if you get a "sold out" message or a message that says "there are not enough tickets for this showtime available" and it does not indicate that the event is sold out on our website, please call 1-866-857-5191 and let them know that you cannot purchase a ticket. Provide as much information as possible about the time of day you tried, how you got to the sales page, etc. They are helping us figure out a glitch in our internal box office sales system so these error messages can end. This message was posted on 12-06-2012.

1-800-FANDANGO is the number to make a ticket purchase using their automated system. You cannot reach a person at this phone number. To speak to a Fandango rep, you must call 1-866-857-5191. That is the number to use to report any errors.

To place an order more quickly on 1-800-FANDANGO enter our "theatre" code when prompted - 2206 for the Egyptian and 2205 for the Aero. Or search by zipcode..

When you select your theatre of choice when ordering tickets on 1-800-FANDANGO, you will only have the option to purchase tickets for the upcoming 7 days of showtimes for that theatre. If a customer wants to purchase for a show that's later than that, they will have to search listings by movie title instead of by theatre. This takes a little longer since the system will bring up every movie title in that alphabettical section, and you'll just have to listen until you hear yours.

Tickets are available on line at If there is no program on the day you are looking at fandango, look below "no shows today" to "coming attractions" and you can buy advance tickets, or feel free to come to the box office in person during box office hours. All advertised shows are open to the public. The Egyptian's zip code is 90028 if you choose to find the theatre by zip code on The only way to buy tickets online is by using Fandango. Fandango service fees will apply.

You can also choose the Egyptian and Aero as your favorite theatre when you create a personal "log-in" on Fandango. It will appear on your home page and you log in and you can use the links to go directly to either theatre.

Each show you buy is a separate transaction for security reasons. You will have a separate confirmation code and "print at home bar-coded ticket" for each individual movie you buy using fandango.

If you are a member you may still use our member ticket sales by phone.

All advertised shows are open to the public.


BOX OFFICE: The box office opens 1 1/2 hours prior to the first show of the day/evening and remain open until 30 minutes after the last show of the day on days when there are evening Cinematheque programs (usually Wed. thru Sun.), but hours will vary. Check the screening schedule to be sure.  When the theatre is rented for a private event, the box office will not be open. Once you are at the box office you may purchase tickets for any show that is no more than 30 days in the future.

Tip: The majority of our customers buy their tickets at the door the night of the screening they want to see, so there are usually long lines 20 minutes before a screening is about to start. To avoid waiting in long lines, when you come to the box office to purchase advance tickets (for a program in the future), avoid peak hours such as the hour before a show starts. On nights where there is more than one show, come once the first movie has gone in and you'll walk right up, or stop by during the afternoon. Should you purchase advance tickets? Well, we do sell out especially when we have guests, so if you don't handle disappointment well, get your ticket in advance. Remember, when you become a member of the Cinematheque you have the privilidge of purchasing tickets in advance of the general public for popular programs.

POLICIES: All advance ticket sales are final. No refunds or exchanges. It is assumed that events are not sold out unless specifically stated on this site. Many events sell out at the door in the  hour before the screening. The best way to make sure you get a ticket is to buy a ticket in advance. Especially for events listed as "premieres" or "ultra-rare" screenings -- or that have celebrity guests. If a show sells out the day before or earlier we will list this on the website and on our voicemail. However, many events sell out at the door.

There will be a waiting list line for sold-out shows that will form in the courtyard the day of the screening.

Only Members may purchase tickets in advance (without a $1/ticket handling charge) by mailing in a credit card order. Checks and Traveler's Checks are not accepted at the box office. We DO ACCEPT Cash, Visa & Mastercard.

Double Features are the same price whether you see both movies or just one. The box office remains open to sell tickets to the second half of a double feature. You can figure out the approximate start time by add about 10 minutes to the running time listed. There is generally a 10 minute intermission. If there are other components to a program that may add to the start time of the second feature, such as a q & a or short film, this information will also be listed.

No autographs (unless a booksigning is advertised); no video/audio taping inside the theatre.

VOUCHERS will not be accepted unless your name and full mailing address is written on the back.

BUYING MEMBERSHIPS: Student/Senior ID must be displayed at time of Membership purchase for discounted Memberships.  Members must show their cards at the box office when picking up tickets purchased by fax or mail.
