Twenty-Three Vintage Newspaper Ads for Twenty-Three Awesome Movies

0

Back in the days when there weren’t any motion posters, Flixster apps, or pop-up ads on the web (or… simply before the days of the internet), the best way to advertise your film was the good ol’ fashioned newspaper.  I’m sure there are some broadsheets that still have advertisements for films nowadays, but there’s nothing like checking out how these films would have been advertised back in the day.

Check out these vintage ads for all kinds of movies – from Star Wars to Star Trek to Animal House - as they would have appeared in a newspaper circulated in your area.  They’re in great condition and seem to have been scanned in from a number of sources.
