The Egyptian Theater opened in 1922 the same year King Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered in Egypt hence the Egyptian theme due to the overwhelming popularity of anything Egyptian that year. If you love old movies and black and whites, there is no other way to see it than on the original big screens they were intended to be seen on.
