BOXOFFICE began as “The Reel Journal” in 1920, the Film Trade Paper of the Southwest. On March 28, 1925, “The Reel Journal” introduced a new cover design, changing the graphic look, dropping the movie reel and film header it had been using. The new cover just featured the words “The Reel Journal” spread across the top as a masthead. It stayed this way until December, 1926, when it changed its cover and name to “Motion Picture Times” later changing to “Movie Age”, followed by “Exhibitors Forum” and a few others. The magazine finally adapted the “BOXOFFICE” name in 1935, which it still uses to this day.
