Hooray for Larry Edmunds
You love movies. You love books. Ergo, you must love Larry Edmunds Bookshop. The Hollywood Boulevard stalwart, in business for more than seven decades, boasts an inventory of half a million movie photographs, 20,000 film and theater books, 6,000-plus original movie posters, and encyclopedic cinematic knowledge you can't find anywhere else, certainly not online (save for their snazzy website). They put on fantastic events, too; last time this writer dropped by, she narrowly missed a bout of fisticuffs between Adam West and William Shatner. Brace yourself for a different slice of Tinseltown magic with "Long Gone Hollywood," an image-laden lecture specially created for Larry Edmunds by The Story of Hollywood: An Illustrated History author and Hollywood native Gregory Paul Williams. His book, considered one of the best local histories ever assembled, is jam-packed with previously unseen photos and local lore and celebrates a new paperback edition tonight. Larry Edmunds Bookshop, 6644 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Wed., Feb. 29, 7 p.m.; free. (323) 463-3273, larryedmunds.com.
