Premiere of "The Goonies", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 683020
June 14, 1985
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 14, 1985
* Best "The Goonies" film advertisement
* Grand Opening week movie premiere
* Adventure comedy cult classic
An issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Goonies" 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 poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's 2nd weekend. The movie opened just one week earlier on June 7.
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 60 pages. Great condition.
