Starring "The King of Hollywood" Douglas Fairbanks, this is the first film ever to have a Hollywood premiere, held at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre on October 18, 1922. One of the most expensive films of the 1920s, this action adventure silent film offers plenty of swashbuckling and cliffhanging escapades for all ages.

Now through July 29, strips of 10 tickets are available for $25, a savings of $1.50 per ticket. Strip tickets are good for any film in any combination.
