Premiere of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645505
December 7, 1979
LOS ANGELES TIMES, December 7, 1979
* Best "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Science fiction film - USS Enterprise
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and perhaps no better newspaper could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication.
Note: Where else might one find authentic, poster-size ads for Opening Day showings, in the most desirable Hollywood-area newspaper - as we were lucky enough to obtain this (and others) indirectly from the Los Angeles Times' own collection? It simply doesn't get any better! In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images).
Page 3 of section IV has a terrific, full page advertisement for the film (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 IV totaling 44 pages. Great condition.
