Premiere of "Gleaming the Cube"... Tony Hawk...

Item # 688609

January 13, 1989

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Jan. 13, 1989

* Best "Gleaming The Cube" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day film premiere
* Neo-noir skateboarding - Tony Hawk
* Mississippi Burning - Deep Star Six - Beaches - Pumpkinhead openings as well

A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Gleaming the Cube" 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 17 has a nice 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 62 pages. Great condition.
