This is a list of all the occurrences of “The Wicker Man” (the movie, not people making wicker things…) I could find looking through newspapers.com  from 1972 to 2006. (2006 is when the US version was made. There were 6507 hits for 2006, too many to look at. I gave up after that.) There are also some other sources listed here.


Date abbreviations are in the US style (Month/day/two digit year). Theater and showtimes were listed when known but not in every case. DLN = listing included Don’t Look Now as the double-bill. Dates up to 6/29/74 are mostly UK listings. UK listings after that are marked UK unless marked as London. AUS = Australia. (Newspapers.com was somewhat limited in what papers it searched. The Guardian in the UK, a paper in Sydney, AUS and only some papers in the US so this isn’t entirely complete.) 

Note the links to some of the listings here.
