Premiere of "Back to the Future", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 660261
July 5, 1985
LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 5, 1985
* Best "Back to the Future" film advertisement
* Grand Opening weekend movie premiere
* Michael J. Fox - Marty McFly - comedy
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Back to the Future" 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).
Within section VI has a terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening weekend. This is a Friday newspaper and the movie had its opening day 2 days earlier on Wednesday. Other nice movie ads as well.
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 48 pages. Great condition.
