Premiere of "Firestarter", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 659032
May 11, 1984
LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 11, 1984
* Best "Firestarter" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere & review
* Science-fiction horror film - Drew Barrymore
* Second weekend of "Sixteen Candles"
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Firestarter", 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 "Firestarter" headed: (see image). And perhaps more significant are the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on its 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 44 pages. Great condition.
