Part of the tour includes the projection booth (35mm and 70mm film projection, plus a new Barco laser projector), and a screening of a short film about the theater and neighborhood.

We could have lunch after at Musso & Frank across the street, oldest restaurant in Hollywood and best martini in Los Angeles, if not the country.

Help! I need help guys! My self-control is MIA.

I've ordered a 77" LG G6 OLED. If you know anyone who appreciates 3D and is looking for a 65" OLED, I've got it (E6).

My Lyngdorf MP-50 will be delivered next week. My upstairs media room will finally be complete!

I know several were interested in coming back over and hearing the [4] Seaton F18s upstairs (one was damaged in shipping but the replacement was just delivered today!).

Please let me know if you are interested in coming over. Also please indicate if you are interested in just demo clips or if you'd like to screen a movie. I can comfortably seat 10.

Here is a link to all the info for The Egyptian Theatre Tour.
From what I can tell, tickets are available right before the tour.

Thanks for the link! You may also buy tickets in advance on Fandango, if you are the planning type.

So let's make this official: LAAVA GTG next Saturday, August 19 for the Egyptian Theatre tour at 10:30am. Anyone getting to Hollywood early we can meet at the Starbucks down the street.

After the tour we'll have brunch at Musso & Frank across the street, which will have both breakfast items (apparently their flannel cakes are highly though of) and heartier fare (plus those famous martinis).

Anyone who wants to stay in Hollywood, later that night the Egyptian is showing a Mario Bava triple feature! I can't stay for it, and I'm quite torn up about it.

Saw it today and enjoyed it. Although I would have preferred a different ending. Must have lucked out on the sustained 126 db sections as I'm pretty sure my viewing session didn't reach that level. Nothing was to onerous for my ears.
