Classic single screen theater with cozy old seats and enough knee room. Real butter on the popcorn. Wine and beer available too!
A nice and well maintained old school cinema. Don't judge by its facade.
Bright projection and delicious concessions, plus they play great films.
It was amazing. I went to see Bianca Del Rio, Lady Bunny, Sherry Vine and Jackie Beats. Best night of my life.
Not a theatrical viewing experience. The sound quality at this theater is very very poor, I saw two movies here recently and sat once in the center and once in the balcony. The balcony sound system or lack thereof made the experience unbearable. The house a/c ducting overpowered much of the ambient noise in the film. This might be a good theater for a novelty showing of Over the Top with Sylvester Stallone, but not for any sort of critical or intentional viewing. One star for effort.
This is a large theater. I don't mean it has a lot of screens, I believe it just has one, but the room where you sit is quite large. Other than that, it's a theater. I get the sense they play a more select level of film here.
Siff member night. Nice theatre
Always love the movies shown here. It's very intimate (the people attracted here looove film) Also one of the best places to catch smaller releases and festivals. The folks behind this theater and the Seattle film scene deserve praise for making this place awesome!
Friendly staff. Expensive drinks, but good local ginger beer. Nice theater. Good sound. Spacious with comfortable seats and balcony seating as well. Good for movies and has a stage for live performances. Good experience here. Apparently, if the ticket guy recognizes you, he'll let you in for free. Didn't happen to me, but I heard it happens.
LOVE. Beautiful setting and can’t go wrong popping in to see any movie even if we haven’t heard of it yet. Combo popcorn/candy/drink pack is a great deal.
We are members and would have hated it five except for the new member popcorn policy.
Great place to see an independent film
Glad someone standing outside directing people to door--my friend walked past entrance not knowing where it was!
I love this theatre and am glad it didn't disappear. They always have great films that you can't see anywhere else. Plus, beer and wine!
the greatest little theater. amazing popcorn. love going places like this. they usually have really great interesting movies
Cool old theater! All the quirks and charm of an old theater with some modern retooling. Great new sound system, bathroom upgrades, and overall fun place to see a movie. Not fond of seats! So uncomfortable! My ass and back is dead by end of festival each year! No parking, street and garage nearby mainly.
Who wouldn't like a place that shows funny cat videos!
Sat in the balcony for first time, stairs are a lawsuit waiting to happen but man what a cool place.
Friendly staff and a cool theater
Talk back with the director of Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts Nick Zeig-Owen. The event ran smoothly with little confusion or friction. SIFF’s volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful.
Few cinemas can touch this one
A nice theater with good films that other chains just don't have.
I love the interior of this old theatre which as the name suggests is Egyptian themed. The interior set up is pretty cool with balcony seating also overlooking the stage and columns supporting both the roof and the Egyptian theme. I've seen some pretty interesting productions here, such as Collide-o-scope's Halloween edition (a mash up of quirky, artistic short films) and most recently the Golden Girls, Live! As portrayed by a very talented group of drag queens. They serve beer, wine and cider as well as popcorn and candy, etc. I appreciate being able to have a drink in a theatre although it would probably be better to be completely sober when it comes to walking down the steps on the balcony to get to a seat since they are a little steep and do not have hand rails The people who work here all tend to be friendly and helpful, haven't had a bad experience with staff there ever All in all I highly recommend seeing a show here, it's a great place that has great entertainment
Always fun. Great movies you can't find in the big theaters.
Very nice theater, old times movie going remembered...nice & friendly staff, part of the Seattle history!
Awesome vintage theater. The seats are a little old and the armrests are fixed in place, but I don't think there's a bad seat in the house! I had accidentally purchased tickets for a showing Saturday night and showed up Friday night. The staff was very understanding about my predicament and was able to revise the booking for the next showing! As others have mentioned, the concession counter serves beer. Ticket and concession prices are typical.
Beautiful old theater run by film purists and hipsters (the good kind). Good popcorn and excellent beer/wine selection. Everyone is nice. Membership worth every penny if you see at least one movie every other month.
Chairs are uncomfortable, but overall the venue is fantastic
Clean, good sound system, padded seats downstairs, wooden seats on the balcony. No choco-popcorn or soda for sale. Women's bathroom is oddly very hot like a sauna. Go before you go.
Very cool venue to see a film.
Charming theater that focuses on foreign and independent films. Good for film lovers but lacking a bit in comfort and technology that you might expect, especially for the ticket price. But you're likely here for a film no one else would show.
Continues to be a stalwart of indie film on the Hill. decent indie circuit selections, that is usually recent releases from national indie releases. Has good selection of wine and beer and pretty good popcorn.
Totally Enjoyed "Seattle Int'l Film Festival" World Premiere of " Patrinelle Wright Total Experience"
Chedeng & Apple. Last day film festival!
Seats are old and not comfortable
Attended as part of the SIFF festival, and the venue and festival were both lovely.
Friendly caring staff. Big screen. A great selection of what people *actually* want to snack on at the movies: nice Reds, Whites, Ciders, Theo chocolate, local rice crispy bars, Full Tilt, coffee, teas, and the traditional favs too along with self serve free water and cups ;)
The Egyptian is one of Seattle's greatest treasures. It's an old world single screen movie house which shows the stuff you don't get in the big mall theaters. There are few better ways to spend an evening in Seattle.
Great movie theatre, worst selection of snacks/candy ever.
Awesome theater and great snack bar with actual drinks
Great venue that shows a great variety of films. I love the involvement with Twist Film Festival. Great show!
Film Freaks spend several weeks a year practically living at the Egyptian, not only for SIFF - one of the oldest and biggest film fests in the US. - but also for special film fests like NOIR CITY - a one week celebration of all films noir. Thank goodness SIFF saved the Egyptian. It is the only old school movie palace left in Seattle!
Sound wasn’t great.
Great concessions and theatre set up!
A proper movie experience - the audience is respectful of one another so you can enjoy the movie. What it lacks in plush comfort is more then made up for is style. May it always remain a theater.
We saw the Muppet Movie singalong here. It was everything I had hoped for, but the seats in the balcony were extremely uncomfortable. I appreciate that they put on creative events for all walks.
filthy. absolutely filthy with sticky floors and grimey seats. oh, and that restroom. could it be any worse?
One of the classic old theaters of Seattle, and there aren't many more like it anymore. It's a gem.
Good place for igniite
This is a very fun place to go see movies! It is a beautiful, big theater. Price is excellent. Price for snacks is also great. I was impressed with the customer service. There wasn't hardly anyone in the theater, so we got great seats. It's a really old theater, so the seats aren't very comfortable. It was a really fun experience, I would go again.
Nice ambiance for older theater. They serve beer and wine too!
I love watching the SIFF films here.
Beautiful historical theatre with the necessary facilities and beverages to ensure your stay is pleasurable.
Might be old but it's one of my favorite theaters in Seattle and I'm glad it's part of SIFF.
Beautiful theater in an old Masonic temple. Decor plays up the Egyptian theme. Showcases many indi films, some long after their original opening. Super friendly staff.
Old fashioned theater that shows great movies. A neighborhood classic that I always look forward to.
Love this theater
This theater has character, and the people who work here know it. It isn't the cleanest, doesn't have the latest and greatest in tech, but it also doesn't pretend to be either. They usually host SIFF or SGLFF movies here too. They also bring old classics and cult faves for midnight showings regularly.
Old charming theater
I love this theater and have been going to movies here since 1982. I saw one of my all time favorite movies here during it's initial run back in the early 80s - Another Country. I'm glad SIFF bought the theater after it closed because it would have been sad to lose this Seattle original to new development. The hand made ice cream sandwiches they carry now are awesome!
I love the bones of this building, it's a fun place to watch a movie.
Very good old fashioned movie experience plus alcohol = Fun!
This beautiful, historic building is a cultural landmark. The location couldn't be more perfect. Close to restaurants and bars if you want to make it a night on the town.
Great old style, nostalgic theatre!
An old and pleasant theater. This place is awesome. You can see the old structure and design of the building. There is only one screen but it's big. The seats are really old and uncomfortable and might be replaced. The cafeteria serves beer and good popcorn buckets. The restroom is small. You should go to enjoy the experience. This cinema is usually used by film festivals.
Nice old school venue
Excellent seats EVERYWHERE, nicest staff, and awesome viewing experience. Puts together some of the best movie selection around, definitely for the person who likes things other than Transformers 9.
Cool little single screen theatre. Alcohol,popcorn and soda served
Beautifully restored theater, watched a jazz documentary there and the sound was wonderful.
Saw a snowboard flick here and loved it. Had great sound, picture, vibe, and the beers were cheap. Great location and would reccomend seeing a movie here!
Easily found parking within a block for about $10 on Saturday night showing. If I decided not to drive, the light rail station is a 5 min walk.
Such a classic theater!
Given the change to comfortable seats at other theaters this place is a throw back (i.e. they aren't comfy. It's like riding an airplane is economy class). This being said they show awesome Indi movies other theaters don't
Great theater for independent films and documentaries.
Favorite independent theater!
Cool theater, staff who are clearly invested and friendly, and a solid concession stand.
Classic movie theater. Great staff, all around clean, and the ability to see the large screen.
Love this theater. We need more midnight movies.
Amazing staff, great movies, good selection of snacks / drinks. I've been desperately missing my tiny independent movie theater from back home and this place is filling that void.
First time seeing a movie here, and what a cool theater! Great concession stand, where you can purchase excellent snacks, even beer and wine! The seats are old, like the building and decor, but not uncomfortable. The old decor is charming, and the architectural features are interesting.
I've always been a fan of the Egyptian. Sad day when they closed. But with the upgrades, this place is absolutely fantastic. Seats are better and (in my opinion) the refreshments are better, too.
If you love indie films and an old timey movie theater feeling you will love this place as much as I do. I like to imagine it as the grand theater it once was. The popcorn is delicious and they serve wine and beer along with coffee and tea. It's a great experience in a hip neighborhood
Came for a show and dinner and was not disappointed with either! The entire venue was fantastic and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! Will definitely be back soon! The food is WONDERFUL but the shows are even better!
SIFF theater it's older, but you're there for the movie, right? You can park at the college garage just up the street. Many, many good memories here!
Great, old style theater.
Not quite as nice as Cinerama, but still a great experience.
I love the Egyptian. It needs our support!
The seats here are ass destroyers and the grade of the floor is pretty low so you always have someone's head blocking you. Those things aside the main draw here is that there is always something interesting playing that you can't get anywhere else, especially midnight showings.
It has the feel of a 50's era classic movie theater, but with hi-tech video and audio technology.
Old style, nice!
A great theatre with great movies, hopefully new seats will be installed soon
Excellent old Capitol Hill Charm, great wine, snacks etc, friendly staff and great film choices
A great place to catch first-run indies and the odd classic. The seats are somewhat uncomfortable and old-fashioned, but it also adds to the charm of the historic theater. I see movies here whenever possible and feel good knowing I'm supporting this great organization.
Beautiful Art Deco brick building. It used to be a Masonic hall and the interior is full of mosaics, murals and it also has a stage. Parking is across the street.
Big screen. Many seats. Interesting movies. I have like for good theater.
Old building but well revamped movie space. Great popcorn with real butter in the middle as well as on top.
This is my favorite indie theater in Seattle! Always playing good movies, delicious popcorn, beverage options, and historic architecture all add to the fantastic experience of viewing a film at the Egyptian!
My girlfriend and I loved going to see "I Am Not Your Negro" beautiful theater. Hope to go again soon
Beautiful historic theatre. Plays all sorts of "indie" fare.
Classical movie theater feel with an Egypt theme as the name suggests. You can get good wine with your popcorn.
Went to see the amazing Aretha in "Amazing Grace". Love her ans them. RIP
Great place for a show. Nice staff. Sound and lights were good and they have good snacks and beer and wine
This is a fantastic building to catch a movie or event at. It’s definitely an old school theater, but with modern benefits such as alcohol. Seriously, if you’re in the Capitol Hill area check out this theater if you want to catch a movie.
Cozy and old style cinema, excellent sound
Excellent old movie theater. Reasonable snack bar prices. High quality cinema film selection. What else do you want from a movie theater?
Great venue that support great causes!
Cozy and old style cinema, but with all the comforts and well situated.
Classic. Great place for indie films!
My wife and I met here, so of course we love the place. And having SIFF in charge is a big improvement over the succession of art house chains that previously operated the theater.
Charming venue for the whole family.
Small indie Theatre, seats are not super comfortable and tall people easily block your views.
Wonderful movies, Q and A with Director. Meet and Greet after.
Cool venue, lots of historic character retained.
The venue was nice, but the cinema screen was smaller than a mainstream theater. This did not detract from my movie experience.
Went to stand up for pride and found the venue well suited for the performances.
The Egyptian is a classic theater showing non run-of-the-mill movies. Plus weekend midnight cult films. If you like single-screen theaters, you'll love this place!
Wish the space was better taken care of.
Old theatre with an incredible ambiance. Perfect place for a unique movie date. The staff play interesting films that you sometimes can't catch in other theatres, and the patrons there are always courteous, quiet, and don't use their phones (thank you!).
Great place. Beautiful inside. The chairs need replaced but over all great experience.
Fantastic old theater that was restored. Terrific venue for movies with large screen and stage. Conveniently located on Capitol Hill only 5 min from downtown Seattle.
Seats are just too hard for my honey rear end
Thankfully preserved for old film goers like me who enjoys a single screen theater, and balconies
I love this theatre. Try it out for yourself when their showing something that intrigues you.
My favorite theater in all of Seattle proper! SIFF healed my broken heart when they reopened this capital hill gem <3
It's a beautiful classic movie theater but the seats are starting to show their age compared to modern movie theaters
I really love all of the SIFF theaters, but the Egyptian is especially fun. Seen some really wonderful movies here, especially foreign films. Especially since the Harvard Exit closed, this is the Capitol Hill theater.
Loved the venue! Great vibes, saw the animation show of shows here with my girlfriend and absolutely loved it. ended up being a cheap great way to spend a night
Drinks, good service, large theater with lots of room so you can spread out with a large group!
A real treat to see a film in this theater. Exquisitely designed, comfortable seats, and great staff.
Excellent seats everywhere! Good movies, and great mission! I go whenever I can!
This place is really pretty cool for its atmosphere and I enjoyed the movie thoroughly. There was a strong smell of bleach when I walked in that took a while for me to get used to
Great interior design and large spacious seats. Almost all the seats are a great view of the screen. The staff is friendly and the snacks are better than amc/regal. Prettiest theatre in town.
A Capitol Hill fixture. Art house films, drag shows, and classics from times past. The crowds are usually good natured, and you'll find that most showings are a participatory experience with your neighbors. The on premises booze is also a plus.
This is such a great venue. The location on Pine at Harvard is easy to get to (Link Light Rail, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 43, 60) even if you're unable to leave your car behind (
The Egyptian is an irreplaceable Seattle icon. They show the bigger indies and some of the Festival tentpoles, and while the venue is a little dated, it feels like home to me.
Great local theater being kept alive by the SIFF team.
Neat old theater. Grab some popcorn and a glass of wine and enjoy the show!
I went there for a comedy show and had a blast. The venue is nice inside. There was construction when I visited but it was not an issue. The drinks were reasonably priced and the staff was very friendly. During my time there I needed some help and one of the employees went above and beyond to ensure that I got everything I needed. I was very happy with my experience and will be returning.
The movie eighth grade by Bo Burnham, it was great! The theater is very open and comfortable period a good view from all seats. The balcony was not open at this time. Great prices at the concession stand
Nice old-fashioned theater.
Great programming and concessions (5/5); facility is worn but has charm (3/5). Overall, SIFF has made an invaluable investment in Capitol Hill.
The Egyptian, like the other SIFF Cinema theaters, is a charming place to watch films of all kinds. The options for food, snacks, and drink are also plentiful - yes you can get alcohol here before your show. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. The movies are chosen carefully and with a lot of thought - they show a lot of the timeless films here and it's something I really appreciate. Worth getting a membership and supporting all the great things they do here for film and the people who love and appreciate them!
Conveniently located in the center of Capitol Hill, this movie theater shows a great selection of indie and international movies.
