Pictures And Premieres Book Launch
25th September 2007

On September 12th, the great and good descended upon the Odeon Leicester Square for a red carpet event. No, not a film premiere but rather a pictorial account of 60 years of film premieres, with the launch of Harry Myers' book "Pictures And Premieres".
