Review & premiere of "Jurassic Park", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 660243
June 11, 1993
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 11, 1993
* Best "Jurassic Park" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Steven Spielberg science-fiction
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Jurassic Park" 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).
The front page of section F has a review of the film headed: "Picking Bones With 'Jurrasic'" with photo. The article carries over to page 12 with another related photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, color poster-like advertisement for the film which consumes two pages (see).
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections A and F totaling 62 pages. Nice condition.
