About Pig 'n Whistle
A Hollywood Landmark, the Pig ‘N Whistle opened in 1927, surviving both the Great Depression and World War II. It filled a void in the old days when movie theatres didn’t have concession counters inside their lobbies. Movie-goers still wanted to eat, of course, but they couldn’t do it in the theatre. So an enterprising soul took advantage of the opportunity and opened a family restaurant and soda fountain right next door to the Egyptian, where movie-goers could have a meal before or after seeing the film.
