Egyptian Theatre to be featured in Gentri music video

March 15, 2018

DeKALB – The Egyptian Theatre is featured in the latest music video for Gentri, “The Gentleman Trio.”

The group shot part of the video when they were in town in February for their performance at the Egyptian. Gentri’s cover of “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman” premiered Feb. 23 on YouTube.

Gentri took the themes from the movie’s “A Million Dreams” scene and worked them to fit the dreams of a young musical theater artist hoping to make it to New York City. The video features the Egyptian as the small theater where the dreams build and grow on the journey to make it.

The Egyptian portions were shot before the group’s performance on Feb. 10.

“We were incredibly excited when the band told us they would be filming at our theater,” Jeanine Holcomb, the theater’s marketing and communications director, said in a news release. “We were even more thrilled when we saw the final product.”

The video has more than 48,000 views on YouTube, making it one of the group’s most viewed music videos.

The Egyptian Theatre, at 135 N. Second St. in downtown DeKalb, is owned and operated by Preservation of Egyptian Theatre Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To learn more, visit egyptiantheatre.org.
