Premieres of "Grease" & "Jaws 2", in a Los Angeles newspaper...



Item # 664864

June 15, 1978

LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 15, 1978

* Best "Grease" and "Jaws 2" advertisements
* Grand Opening Day (EVE) movie premieres
* Musical romantic comedy & thriller films


A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Grease" & "Jaws 2", 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 F are two advertisements for "Grease" and "Jaws 2" which started the following day. Could these be the 1st newspaper ads for these two films ?.
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 F totaling 64 pages. Great condition.
