Item # 646579
May 4, 1984
LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 4, 1984
* Best "Repo Man" and "Sixteen Candles" advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premieres & review
* Science fiction comedy cult & coming of age films
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Repo Man" "Sixteen Candles", 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).
Inside section VI has the review of the film "Sixteen Candles" headed: (see images). And perhaps more significant are the terrific, full page poster-like advertisements for the films printed on their 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 80 pages. Great condition.
