Movie Poster Archives
December 8 - 15, 2021
Movie Poster Archives is auctioning donated original movie posters, stills, lobby cards, classic reproductions, and more selected from over 800,000 items in our repository. The vaults are open to fund our programs for the preservation and study of movie paper, exhibits, and education.
SNEAK PREVIEW NOW LIVE
Check out the first 500 lots now. More will be loaded until the Auction opens on December 8. Terrific surprises to come, so check back often.
Every item is inspected and evaluated by our archivists Ed and Sue Poole. Their descriptions clearly state what's known about each item. The Smithsonian, Heritage Auctions, collectors, dealers, and even the FBI trust their knowledge and experience.
Treasured Historical Artifacts
Movie posters tell us who we are, where we're from, and inspire who we want to be. And they're fun!
Our purpose is to create a vast digital and physical archive for the preservation and research of movie paper. Movie posters are fragile. They were created as disposable advertising and were never meant to last. Vulnerable to fire, water, sunlight, and the ravages of time, most have disappeared into history.
Movie Posters have an intrinsic value to film enthusiasts, and these fragile relics are a treasure trove for the study of film, art, history, and social attitudes. They illustrate our outlooks on race, women, sexuality, politics, and every other aspect of human endeavor and behavior through the decades.
Shipping is combined and packed with care.
Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for delivery. We make every effort to securely pack your items and that takes time. Unfortunately, recent changes in the U.S. Postal Service also mean deliveries are taking longer. Feel free to contact us if you are concerned about your shipment.
