Review & premiere of "Batman", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645499
June 23, 1989
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 23, 1989
* Best "Batman" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Superhero - Michael Keaton - Tim Burton
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Batman" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry. In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images).
The front page of section VI has a review of the film headed: "Batangst in Basic Black" with related photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film on it's opening day. (see).
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections 1 and VI totaling 54 pages. Great condition.
