Los Angeles Bond Events This Weekend

As a reminder to L.A. spy fans, former James Bond continuation author and all-around expert on the subject Raymond Benson will appear at The Mystery Bookstore in Westwood tomorrow (Saturday). At 12:30, Benson will present a lecture in honor of Ian Fleming's Centenary entitled "The James Bond Phenomenon" and then sign his latest books, including the original mystery A Hard Day's Death and the blockbuster videogame adaptation Metal Gear Solid. Benson doesn't make many West Coast appearances, so be sure to try to catch this one! I'm hoping to attend, but circumstances may prevent that.

That's not all the Bond that's going on in town this weekend, though. On Sunday and Monday (August 10 and 11), the New Beverly Cinema will screen Goldfinger (a new 35mm print!) and Thunderball. Showtimes vary depending on the night, so be sure to check their schedule...
