Review & premiere of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", in a Los Angeles newspaper...



Item # 646623

November 18, 1977

LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 18, 1977

* Best "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Science fiction film - Steven Spielberg - Richard Dreyfuss


A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" 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?

The front page of section IV has a review of the film headed: "Saucer Sorcery" And perhaps more significant is the nice 15 x 13 inch advertisement for the film printed 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 IV totaling 64 pages. Great condition.
