Here's Looking at You, Kid
On Sunday, I went to see Casablanca at the Egyptian Theater in Dekalb. Built in the 1920s, it was one of a chain of themed theaters designed by Elmer F. Behrns. They're historic, and the one in Hollywood -- Grauman's Egyptian Theater -- is a TCM Film Festival venue.
The one in Dekalb is much smaller and, frankly, in sadder shape than her glittery Hollywood sister. But remodeling and renovation is underway! And Sunday's event was a fundraiser to help restore her to her former glory.
