Q

Hello.... Would it be possible, please, to be sent a copy (scan) of an item from the movie advertisements section of the Omaha World-Herald

Hello.... Would it be possible, please, to be sent a copy (scan) of an item from the movie advertisements section of the Omaha World-Herald issue published May 16th, 1986? What I am seeking is a copy of the page (or relevant portion of) on which the display advertisement for "Top Gun" appeared. If it's costly or cumbersome to make a copy, would you instead consider confirming in an email reply which Omaha theater, if any, was showing "Top Gun" that day in a process called "70mm Six-Track Dolby Stereo"? If there were any such presentations, it should be noted as such in the newspaper advertising with a logo or text next to the applicable theater. Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks for asking! I happened to be in the right workspace (and degree of piqued curiosity) to look this up quickly on microfilm, but if you have similar requests in the future let me encourage you to email research@omahalibrary.org. Our local history research staff track that account and may be better equipped to help you. More information (and costs) can be found at our Local Research Help page. 

Now, to the fun stuff. I have attached what I believe is the display advertisement announcing the release of Top Gun. Indian Hills, Cinema Center, and Q-Cinema 6 all feature the "Dolby Stereo" icon - I'll trust your expertise on whether that necessarily means 70mm six-track. 

As a tangential tidbit of film interest, Indian Hills was noteworthy as a Cinerama theater

Thanks again for using AskOPL!
