Actors, writers, and theatre and film folk of all ilk, some sad news: Samuel French announced they will be closing down one of their locations and consolidating their operations. The Daily Actor spotted the info on the Samuel French Facebook page, where the longstanding theatre and film bookshop divulged they are packing it in at their Studio City store next year and will operate just the Hollywood store.

The Studio City store will close February 20, 2012.

The store closing was framed as "an exciting announcement," putting a very positive spin on what can easily be read as bad news, especially for Valleyite thespians who frequent the Ventura Boulevard shop.

In addition to the Hollywood location, Samuel French operates shops in New York City and London.
