Other Info: On November 17-18, 1984 in Canada (for a United Way Benefit) and on March 28, 1985, in the United States, there was one complete, uncut showing of the Star Wars trilogy at nine participating theaters. These nine theatres were each given two personalized posters for the promotion of this event, creating one of the rarest and quite possibly the most valuable one-sheet ever produced for the Star Wars Trilogy. These black and white, "photographically enlarged" one-sheets, were created from the original local newspaper advertisements, with a few minor changes, and each one measures approximately 27" x 41", while the Canadian version is slightly larger at 27½" x 41½". These heavy stock posters have an embossed, textured feel to them, and they contain the three movie logos, along with the theatre's name, box office information, and any sound system logo (eg. THX) that applied to that individual theatre. The American versions of this poster contain text at the top that proclaims - "For the first time in America, The Star Wars Trilogy", while the Canadian version says, "Special Showing, One Performance Only, The Star Wars Trilogy." In America - this special performance benefited the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In Canada - the proceeds went to the Canadian Children's Foundation. (The poster pictured here is the Canadian triple bill one-sheet from the Uptown Theatre, in Toronto, Canada. It has the "PARENTAL GUIDANCE ADVISED" rating on it in the lower right hand corner above the 70MM banner.
