1985 summer movies

July 4th weekend is always a bankable one at the box office. There’s always some kind of major release hitting the big screen to get people as they enjoy some time off for Independence Day, and people flock to theaters to see stuff they missed from the previous weeks or just to see something again with their friends and family.

This past weekend, Jurassic World dominated the box office for a fourth weekend in a row, edging out Pixar’s Inside Out again and keeping Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys down as well. Those are some big offerings, but back in the summer of 1985, the line-up of movies available in theaters, according to a newspaper clipping, was both impressive and much different as far as the variety of offerings.
