While I'm disappointed that the Festival organizers decided not to screen The Grim Game in the larger Chinese Theater (instead they are showing the 1964 Sophia Loren film, Marriage Italian Style), the Egyptian is a nice venue for this film. Built in 1922 by Sid Grauman, it was one of Hollywood's first movie palaces, and the site of the first-ever Hollywood premiere. The exterior and interior walls feature Egyptian-style paintings and hieroglyphics. The theater was restored in 1996 by the American Cinematheque. In 2012 it hosted a Houdini double-feature of Terror Island and The Man From Beyond.
If you wish to attend The Grim Game premiere, you have a few (not great) options. You can buy a festival pass, but even a pass doesn't guarantee entry. You'll still need to line up. Individual tickets are also sold at the door at the time of the screenings depending on availability. Again, because the festival decided to play this in a smaller theater, getting in could be a magic trick. Even I'm not 100% sure I'm getting in.
The festival will also screen the 1953 classic Houdini with Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh at the Chinese Multiplex House 6 on March 29 at 4:45pm.
