Item # 645550

LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 14, 1982
* Opening of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" film
* 2nd day movie advertisement
This newspaper has a significant advertisement for the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" on page 3 of section 5 for the second day of it's original opening. The ad measures 10 x 6 inches. I would suspect this is a very rare item as their was really no reason for anyone to keep this issue at the time. Great to have this ad in a newspaper from the capital 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).
Complete 1st and 5th sections only with 42 pages total, nice condition.
