Announcement    Thank you for checking out my shop. I specialize in horror, sci-fi, action, exploitation, blaxploitation, cult films, Disney, sleaze, and trash.

The bulk of my 1,000+ movie poster collection is for sale, even though most of it is not yet listed here. So please click the CUSTOM ORDER box if there's anything you're looking for. Chances are good that I already have it or can get it!

Unless otherwise specified, all of my movie posters are the original, theatrical posters. I do not like reprints and never buy them for my own collection, so I would NEVER sell them. I've been collecting for decades, and in 2016 I began selling at various conventions and shows in Southern California. I also consign with a couple stores in the LA area, including Bearded Lady Vintage and Seven Deadly Fairies. If you see me at a store or an event, say hi!

Certain terms and categories are often found in my listings. I've outlined some of them below:

CONDITION: I grade on a declining scale - FINE, VERY GOOD, GOOD, FAIR, POOR. Generally speaking, most of my posters range from Good to Very Good. I'll always list any defects and damage. Along this line, it's not uncommon for the back of a poster to include marks, stamps, or writing from theaters and/or dealers. Generally this does not affect a poster's value UNLESS it bleeds through to the front.

COUNTRY - When I mention COUNTRY in a listing, it refers to the country of the poster, not necessarily the film. I won't always mention if a poster is from the United States, but I'll always note if a poster is from any place else! INTERNATIONAL means the poster was printed in the United States for a different market.

SIZE - Posters come in many types and sizes, for example a United States ONE SHEET (1SH) is larger than a HALF SHEET or an INSERT. A British QUAD is similar to a US Half Sheet, but not exactly, and an Australian DAY BILL is almost like a US Insert, but often wider and on thinner paper. A Japanese B2 is close to a German A1. And sometimes dimensions vary even within these basic size types. My listings always include a poster's size type and dimensions to the best of my ability.

STYLE - It's not uncommon for a studio to release many styles of posters for any single movie. For example, an ADVANCE poster may be significantly different from a TEASER. A REVIEW style may extensively showcase critic quotes. When known, I'll mention the poster's style and how it differs from other known styles. This is only meant as a general guide though and should never be taken as an exhaustive list of all styles!

ARTIST - Many posters are as collectible for their artwork as for their film's popularity. If I know who created the poster's art, I'll specify it.

SNIPE - Snipes are stickers or pieces of paper that have been affixed to a poster, usually with additional or revised information not otherwise found on the poster. In some cases they were applied by the studio so that they didn't have to print all new posters. In other cases they were applied by theater owners. Snipes are generally considered minor defects, but not always. Depending on specifics, they can sometimes even add to a poster's aesthetic. In any case, I will always mention if a poster contains a snipe.

RE - If you see RE in one of my listings, it means the poster is a reissue from a later theatrical run than the first. Generally speaking, reissues are less expensive than posters from the film's first run, but this doesn't mean they aren't desirable! I actually prefer the artwork of many reissues over their comparable first runs. Whenever possible, I'll include the year of the reissue. Example: RE72 means it's from the 1972 theatrical run.

NSS - NSS stands for National Screen Service. They handled the majority of movie poster advertising in the United States from the 1940s through the mid 1980s, and they created a coding system to keep track of all the materials being printed. Most posters from this time period have an NSS NUMBER, based on the year the movie was released and the sequential order of the film in relation to other releases. The NSS number is helpful in understanding a film's release, so I'll usually include it when possible.

Please note that a shipping discount applies on all multiple orders. Whenever possible, items will be shipped together to conserve materials and save postage, but the shipping discount still applies even in cases where I have to package items separately. For example, folded posters will be shipped flat in a box or in a mailer supported by cardboard, while rolled posters will be shipped in a sturdy tube.

People often tell me how great my prices are. It's because I do this as much for the fun of it as for any other reason. And I don't gouge my customers! I do my best to buy high quality/low cost and to pass those savings to you.

Thanks again for looking through my shop! And come back often... I have more inventory than I could possibly list in one day (or even one year), so expect new listings all the time.

I sell vintage movie posters and movie memorabilia

I've been collecting for decades, but started selling about two years ago. I love vending at conventions and shows because I get paid to talk with people about movies all day! I also consign with Bearded Lady Vintage in Burbank, and 7 Deadly Fairies in Pasadena. If you see me at an event or a store, be sure to say HI!
