Premiere of "Pink Floyd - The Wall", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 663136
September 17, 1982
LOS ANGELES TIMES, September 17, 1982
* Best "Pink Floyd - The Wall" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Live-action/animated musical drama film
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture cult classic hit "Pink Floyd - The Wall" 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 5 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 40 pages. Great condition.
