Metropolis Books will close September 30, reports LAO, adding the Main street bookstore will be the subject of a documentary following their last days. The film will be titled "30 Days to the End, the Closing of Metropolis."
Yet, it will not be the film debut of the store appearing as itself. It had a cameo. (At least the sign did).
You can spot the Metropolis Books sign in the opening bars of "You Make My Dreams Come True," the morning after song-and-dance from 500 Days of Summer.
September 30 will also be the end of Julie sending me the oddest off-the-record observations from Main St. It's worthy of a book some day.
