Premiere of "The Fly", in a Los Angeles newspaper...

Item # 646840

August 15, 1986

LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 15, 1986

* Best "The Fly" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere
* Science-fiction horror film - Jeff Goldblum

A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Fly" 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 3 of section VI has a terrific, full page poster-like 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 VI totaling 64 pages. Great condition.
