Lomography Gallery Store LA Opening Recap and Oscar Party


The biggest Lomography Gallery store so far recently opened to great fanfare in the City of Angels! Here's a brief recap of how they rocked!

The Opening Night, As if You Were There!

On February 18th 2010, we opened the Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles, the first of 2010 and the 12th world wide! The store sits right in the heart of bustling West Hollywood at the corner of Santa Monica and N. Laurel. People flocked for an unforgettable party with 500+ new friends in attendance. If you felt the ground shaking in West Hollywood that night, it was probably the thunderous sound of our live musical guest Mariachi and the vibrations of everyone singing “La Bamba”! The drinks were flowing, the tacos and tamales were sizzling, and Lomography was welcomed to LA with open arms. Rest assured, there are more grand openings to come this year and when a Lomography Gallery Store moves in near you, be sure you’re there to see all the action in person!
