CLEOPATRA (1934) - 80th Anniversary!

Sunday, October 5 - 7:00PM Egyptian Theatre

Presented by the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Association with Girls Drawin’ Girls and Golden Road Brewery.

Join us in celebrating the exact 80th anniversary of the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille’s CLEOPATRA starring Claudette Colbert. This version of the life of beautiful and powerful queen of Egypt, Cleopatra is known for its outlandish spectacle, including luxurious, risque gowns that are more slinky 1930s high fashion than ancient Egypt, but that is part of the film’s enduring charm! As a companion to the film screening is an art show. Guests will be admitted at 5:00 PM to see a solo exhibition by Ashley Brooke Cooper of ancient Egyptian inspired “pin up” art. Following the film is a party in the courtyard with photo ops, Egyptian theme activities and drinks sponsored by Golden Road Brewery. Dress like an Egyptian and you might win a price!

The film will start at 7:00 PM.

Special ticket prices: $13 General, $11 Students/Seniors, $9 Members.

Although outrageously appropriate to have originally premiered at the Egyptian, CLEOPATRA did not in fact make its debut in 1934 at our theatre. But, is there a more perfect place to celebrate its 80th anniversary?
