American premiere ad for "Pink Floyd - The Wall"...

Item # 700722

August 06, 1982

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York (weekly), Aug. 6, 1982

* Best "Pink Floyd - The Wall" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Live-action/animated musical drama film

Page 44 has a full page advertisement for: "Pink Floyd - The Wall" for it's American premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan.
This ad is for that very first showing of the film in the United States. It premiered in New York City about a month before the rest of the country. Being a weekly publication, this is for the opening day of the film. I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
Page 47 has the opening day review as well.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 112 pages, one fold across the center, nice condition.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Rare as such.
