Working at DriveIns and Cinemas growing up I was able to get my hands on a lot of press sheets though, obviously, some came without a ad or a halfr but I couldnt tell you where even one of them is now. All I know is, at one stage, I had thousands. I had press sheets for everything from Back to the Future to Cocoon, The Fly and Die Hard.
