The Egyptian Theatre in Downtown DeKalb is very excited to welcome DeKalb native Richard Jenkins to the Egyptian on Tuesday, October 30 to cap off their Richard Jenkins Film Series.
Every Tuesday this fall, the Egyptian has been showing a film that was hand selected by Jenkins as a favorite of his that he has acted in. The series will end on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 PM with last year’s Academy Award Best Picture winner, The Shape of Water, with Jenkins in attendance.
Prior to the film, the Egyptian will be hosting a Pre-Movie Star Reception starting at 5 PM. This is a limited ticket event with tickets priced at $50. All funds raised will benefit the Egyptian Theatre. Each ticket includes entry into the reception, appetizers, a champagne toast, and a cash bar.
Movie entry tickets for “The Shape of Water” are sold separately from the reception tickets. Movie tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and seniors. Friends of the Egyptian Theatre members save $2 on movie tickets.
Jenkins, who grew up in DeKalb, is a two-time Academy Award nominee with one Emmy award under his belt. His career spans nearly 40 years with many impressive roles and co-stars including Kurt Russell, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and many more.
Tickets are very limited to this exclusive reception and are on sale now. Tickets are available for purchase over the phone, in person at our box office and online at
