Old movie newspaper clippings

I wasn't sure what to refer to these as, but this is what I'm talking about. You know, the stuff in your local paper:



As a kid I cut some out of my local paper when Jurassic Park was in theaters, and I'd love to find them just to look at them. Anyone here have any old ones from newspapers, or know of places online that have some? I think they're kinda nifty to look at. It's like a trip down memory lane.

I have my newspaper clippings in an old box - they're fun to look at, I just wish I had retained the part of what theaters were playing them - the DC area has changed alot with alot of theaters coming and going (more of the latter though)

I used to keep a file of all the newspaper ads as well, but one day I was cutting out an ad for the Whoopi Goldburg fick Eddie and decided that I had enough.

I saved them in scrapbooks as a kid. There were a lot of artwork variations not used on posters. On Christmas they would use green and red ink. Drive-in ads were the best with the horror/monster movie triple/quadruple features and the biker flick drive-in ads. When I found where to get real posters I tossed them.
I also saved and collected the tv show ads from Fall Preview issue of TV Guide and the indivual movie ads throughout the year.
