Premiere of "Blade Runner", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645968
June 25, 1981
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 25, 1982
* Best "Blade Runner" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Dystopian science fiction - Harrison Ford
* John Carpenter's "The Thing" Opening day
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Blade Runner" and perhaps no better issue 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 5 of section VI has a the terrific, poster-like advertisement for the film which consumes a full page.
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 50 pages. Great condition.
