Behind a cloud of exhaust, we get a view of the Galaxy 6 as Joe Pesci and Christian Slater head down the street in Barry Levinson's "Jimmy Hollywood" (Paramount, 1994). For more information about the theatre see our page about the Galaxy 6 -- a short-lived General Cinema muliplex just west of the Chinese.
We get a nice shot looking out from behind the boxoffice of the El Capitan. Joe Pesci and Christian Slater are exploring the stars on the sidewalk. See our El Capitan pages for a history of the theatre, opened in 1926 as a legit house, now a film venue operated by Disney.
The film finishes up with lots of shots inside the then-closed Egyptian. Actor wannabe Jimmy Alto's moment of fame ends up being a shootout with the police. Here we get a look at some of the proscenium plasterwork.
