You may have heard – the Egyptian Theatre is installing a sprinkler system throughout the building this summer. Why is that important? Well, if a fire breaks out in this historic setting, we’ll have a better chance of saving you and this DeKalb jewel, if necessary! We’re bringing the modern age into a 1920s home and making it look like it’s always been here – and improving for the well-being of our patrons and users!
But there’s more news, too…we’ve got something for everyone (or just about everyone) in the next week.
Beth Fowler’s School of Dance is here with a new show called “A Storybook Ballet.” You can see talented children taking the stage to dance the story of Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. Shows are 7 pm on Friday, 2 and 7 pm on Saturday and a Sunday matinee performance at 2 pm.
On Tuesday, March 19, we’re showing #4 on the AFI’s list of Top 10 Films of All Time – “Raging Bull.” The movie starts at 6:30 pm and tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
Spring must be coming, right? We hope so, because on Thursday, March 21 we’re showing “Singin’ in the Rain” at 6:30 pm – #5 on AFI’s Top 10 list and rescheduled from March 5. Thanks to Kish Health System and NIU’s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences External Programming, Department of English, and Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi for sponsoring the AFI Top Film Series!
