Mexican Theatre Ads

Post by Mosh on Thu Jan 28, 2016 5:47 am

A Mexican newspaper advertisement for ROTJ in theatres. Typos aside ("petitition" instead of "petition"), it's a nice showcase of how was the practice of just collaging printed text over pictures quite common back in the day.

They were from a newspaper, that my grandparents got at the time.  When I would go over to visit, I would read the comic pages.  The backs of the pages have parts of "Archie", "BC", & "Wizard of ID"
