Julie Andrews Discusses Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years At Barnes & Noble – The Grove On November 20

Join Barnes & Noble – The Grove on November 20, 2019 at 7:30 PM as they host legendary actress and #1 New York Times international bestseller Julie Andrews to celebrate the release of Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years. 

With this second memoir, Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years, Andrews picks up the story with her arrival in Hollywood and her phenomenal rise to fame in her earliest films—Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. Andrews describes her years in the film industry — from the incredible highs to the challenging lows. Not only does she discuss her work in now-classic films and her collaborations with giants of cinema and television, she also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world, dealing with the demands of unimaginable success, being a new mother, the end of her first marriage, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards. The pair worked together in numerous films, including Victor/Victoria, the gender-bending comedy that garnered multiple Oscar nominations.

Seating is limited, and will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Purchase of a ticket guarantees entrance to the event, but may not necessarily guarantee a seat at the event, as later arrivals may be placed in standing room only.

The event will include a Talk/Q&A with Julie Andrews and one copy of Home Work.

Tickets can be ordered HERE.

The Beatles’ Abbey Road Crossing To Be Recreated At Hollywood And Vine On September 26

The city of Los Angeles will close down Vine St. at Hollywood Blvd. from 1-3:30 on Sept. 26 to recreate the Beatles’ Abbey Road Crossing.

That and other ceremonial festivities will take place adjacent to Hollywood’s famed Capitol Records tower the day before the release of “Abbey Road: Anniversary Edition,” a 50th anniversary box set including a newly remixed version of the album and previously unreleased outtakes from the 1969 sessions.

The crosswalk will be recreated with a non-slip heavy vinyl recreation of Abbey Road’s zebra crossing laid down over the existing Vine St. crosswalk, with an 8-foot tall double-sided backdrop of 4 panels (two per side) showing the ‘Abbey Road’ cover art photo without the Beatles in the image. There will be four Abbey Road zebra crossing + backdrop areas (two areas per side) for fans to take photos and videos.

Sir Patrick Stewart will provide the celebrity presence at the occasion, joined by L.A. city councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and Board of Public Works President Kevin James. Other attractions beyond the photo op will include a Beatles pop-up shop curated by Amoeba Music, food trucks, “Abbey Road” cupcakes and an unspecified “free, exclusive, commemorative takeaway item,” while supplies last.

The temporary crosswalk unveiling and a dedication for a permanent new City of Los Angeles sign at the Capitol tower will take place from 1-1:15, with the rest of the festivities going on till 3:30. The celebration takes place on the actual 50th anniversary date for the release of “Abbey Road”.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood: An Evening With Quentin Tarantino & Friends At The GRAMMY Museum On October 2, 2017

The GRAMMY Museum will present a special evening with Quentin Tarantino on October 2, 2019. The event will celebrate the recent music-laden film, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and its soundtrack. 

The program will begin with a panel discussion including Quentin Tarantino, Mark Lindsay (co-founder and original lead singer of Paul Revere & the Raiders) whose songs are featured on the soundtrack, along with music writer and critic David Wild, and GRAMMY Museum moderator Scott Goldman. Following the discussion, Mark Lindsay will perform a few of his songs from the soundtrack, featuring a choral ensemble from Tesoro High School.

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director, which features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age, debuted in theatres July 26 and went on to be the only original film to cross $100 million at the summer domestic box office.

The soundtrack, personally curated by Tarantino himself, is a love letter to the music of 1960s-era Hollywood. The Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood soundtrack features over 20 standout tracks from artists such as Paul Revere & The Raiders, Deep Purple, and Neil Diamond, as well as vintage radio advertisements, creating a true time capsule of a golden era of filmmaking. 

Keeping with Tarantino’s status as a true collector and lover of vinyl, attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase super deluxe edition vinyl copies of the soundtrack and additional merchandise at the GRAMMY Museum during the program.

Tickets will cost $50 and they will go on sale Saturday, September 21, 2019.
