The font of the title at the Egyptian is pretty amateurish. Looks like it was done by a local high school. Very odd they didn’t use original art work.
As great as the original logo for “Funny Girl” is, it just isn’t marquee friendly. Columbia Pictures used the original Broadway logo and when it was cut up for the huge billboard above the Winter Garden marquee it just looks awkward.

I understand what you’re saying about it looking awkward but I think it’s preferable to what’s on the Egyptian marquee. It could have been designed more professionally. The split logo looks awfully good on the Criterion marquee.
The Criterion also had the spinning logos on the top corners.
