After what happened at William Daniels, I've decided not to bother with their events anymore.

They don't cap the ticket sales, so they never sell out. Has resulted in 100s of people being lined up outside waiting hours to get in, for a normally cruddy experience.

Hi everyone! I'm new here-in fact, I think this is the first message board I've ever joined. But, I have been lurking for awhile.

I'm from Los Angeles, but am going to NYC for this Brian de Palma signing, as he rarely comes here anymore.

The thing is- I only collect original posters signed by directors. I have a Scarface poster that I'd love to have de Palma signed. I know what Joresky said about additional items and I called Strand about it, and they were like "uhhhh, I guess you can bring the poster, good luck."

So, I was wondering if any of you have any tips you'd be willing to share about how to get my poster signed? Where to stand? What time to get there? And so on.

Thank you very much. Excited to have joined markedout.

Strand won't be any help. I guess wait until the end as there's usually a bunch of people who do for that specific reason. As I say that he could do them in the beginning then stop, ha ha. Another tactic is to buy a stack of books and be like um I bought all these dumb books how bout it? The other considerarion, because Strand never limits the number of books sold, it might be wiser to try early in the line. That way in the event they cut the line off you'll at least have gone through. If you fail, you could probably get back in the end of the line. I can guarantee there will be a ton of collectors there trying the same thing. Many like myself have lucked into him on the street and gotten a photo but he's really difficult to know when to have something to be signed.

Update from the store, there will no longer be a physical signing!

In an effort to limit person-to-person contact and ensure the health of attendees, events for the foreseeable future will not feature a public signing. Attendees will receive pre-signed copies of Are Snakes Necessary?

Thanks for the update, which sucks but is understandable.
