NEW LOCATION!

Come visit our new digs!!

Sideshow has moved and expanded: both the scope of its purpose and size of its inventory.  We’ve maintained the cozy charm of our cherished, original bookstore, and added space for readings, workshops, and events.

More nooks, more hidden treasure, and much-needed quiet outdoor space to read, relax and re-charge.

Indeed, we’re beyond the model of the commercial bookstore into a dynamic non-profit social sanctuary for books, book lovers, scholars, writers, artists… everyone!

Now, more than ever, we reachout to our friends and customers to help jumpstart this bigger and more deeply community-oriented Sideshow!

Our new Pico-Robertson-neighborhood space has already started to plan events, such as our upcoming Poetry Night, this Sunday, July 22nd., at 8PM.

Collage and Book-binding classes are being initiated soon.

And our SideShow Summer Cinema Schedule rolls on with al fresco homey against-the-big-wall screenings on the back patio.  Check the schedules both our various film seres GIALLO and HOLLYWOOD’S BIGGEST SLEEPERS:
