LA Blade - Some of the buzziest films from the world’s top film festivals are headed to this year’s Outfest, part of the just-announced full lineup for its 37th edition. A slew of unique special events are also on tap, as is a shift in home base for the fest, to Hollywood’s historic TCL Chinese Theatres.

Kicking off as usual with a gala premiere at DTLA’s Orpheum Theatre, LA’s LGBTQ film festival will open on Thursday, July 18 with Circus of Books, a saucy and moving new documentary that’s fresh from its triumphant world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. With its local and long-beloved subject matter — the sadly recently-shuttered Circus of Books emporium of gay erotica on Santa Monica Boulevard — the doc is a natural prologue to this year’s Outfest.
