Before the 1963 Taylor and Burton epic about the fabled Egyptian queen, there was this 1934 Cecil B. DeMille precursor. Claudette Colbert stars as Cleopatra in the pre-Code film, memorable for its scandalous costumes. Celebrate the work's exact 80th anniversaryfittinglyat the Egyptian Theatre. Before the movie screens, take in Egyptian-inspired pin-up art in the courtyard starting at 5pm, and stick around afterward for a party, complete with makeup stations, a "Make Your Own Mummy" contest and drinks from Golden Road Brewery.
