Seattle 

This thing’s turning the big two-ooh today. 


On December 26, 1927, in Hollywood’s Golden Age, Downtown Los Angeles welcomes the first United Artists Theatre.
Built upon Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks’s will to free artists from the major movie corporations, the building brought a new aesthetic to the Broadway Theatre District — the ornaments inspired by the Spanish Gothic era marked a break in the Art Deco architecture in vogue at the time.
We couldn’t be happier to be part of the building’s history and we look forward to celebrating its 85th anniversary by reopening its doors to our friends, old and new.

Elliott Bay Book Company celebrates 40 years of independent bookselling today in Seattle, Washington, where we also threw down our first roots. After 36 years Downtown, they schlepped their assets over to Capitol Hill, into this 95-year-old warehouse that was once the sole Ford truck service center for Seattle. Now it’s a service center and warm hearth for devotees of the endangered real, live book, and its patron saint, the bookseller. If you’re staying with us in Seattle, you can take a long walk or a short cab ride to this epic church of reading — it’s really worth it.

On this day in 1979, The Cure released its debut album Three Imaginary Boys featuring “10.15 Saturday Night,” “Subway Song” and “Fire in Cairo.” It’s incredible that they traveled so far back from the future — their true time — in the time machine pictured above.
