Weekend Premiere of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646696
May 25, 1984
LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 25, 1984
* 1st weekend "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" advertisement
* Opening weekend (Friday) movie premiere
* Steven Spielberg - Harrison Ford
A terrific issue on the premiere weekend of the motion picture hit "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry.
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). This movie opened two day earlier on Wednesday.
Page 4 has a terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening weekend (Friday). (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 44 pages. Nice condition.
