Our shop and gallery at 33 Great Windmill Street, Soho is now open. We thought long and hard about which posters to frame for the gallery. In the end we opted for a range of colours and sizes, in the hope they would complement each other. The framed posters are all in excellent condition, generally rolled or linen  backed and ready to be hung in a welcoming home. From left to right in the image below you can see a US One Sheet poster for Pulp Fiction, UK Quad posters for 'For Your Eyes Only' and 'Drive' (in browser), [...]

Most Coveted Modern Batman Poster?

By |2021-08-20T16:21:21+01:00August 20, 2021|Categories: Authenticity, Collecting, Investment|

Batman was first seen in the cinema in 1943 and this film was followed by a Batman and Robin movie in 1946. Adam West's Batman arrived on the big screen in 1966 in a movie that was based on the television series. Many readers will remember the tights worn by Batman and Robin and the 'POW', 'BAM', 'SMACK' exclamations that accompanied the fight scenes. Posters for these films are, of course, highly desirable, rare and expensive. In the past 40 years there have been many films beginning with Michael Keaton's 1989 portrayal of Batman in a Tim Burton directed film. [...]

Some movie inspiration!

By |2021-09-04T08:26:42+01:00March 12, 2021|Categories: Authenticity|

As lockdown grinds on we run out of box sets and films to watch. A friend recently claimed to have completed Netflix!!  For this reason, we thought it worth suggesting some movies you may not have seen or haven’t seen in several years. It would be a stretch to call any of them obscure but perhaps they can provide some TV inspiration. Not only are they very entertaining pieces of film, but they also have particularly eye-catching movie posters. Furthermore, we have the posters for all 3 movies on our website priced at£100 or less. Out of Sight (1998) A [...]

One of these posters is Fake!

By |2021-04-26T11:04:56+01:00February 10, 2021|Categories: Authenticity|

Last week we discussed in an article some tell-tale signs that a Cinema Poster may not be authentic. There are many specific examples online outlining the reasons certain US One Sheet Posters are reproductions, being passed off as originals. However, we have found few articles examining a fake UK Quad Cinema poster. If you type ‘Fake UK quad poster’ into Google, few specific examples of fake UK Quad posters can be found. Therefore, in this article, we will examine a bootleg ‘Reservoir Dogs’ UK Quad poster that came into our possession.  For comparison, we also look at an original poster [...]

Can I be sure this Cinema Poster is Authentic?

By |2021-04-26T11:04:56+01:00February 6, 2021|Categories: Authenticity|

How do I know the poster I have acquired is an original and not a fake? For good reason, this is the most common question asked by new buyers in the Cinema Poster market. Before attempting to answer this question, it is first worth clarifying some definitions. We will then discuss five key checks we do to authenticate a poster. Original/ Genuine/ Authentic: ‘Original’ Movie posters have been commissioned by film studios to promote a cinema release and the print-work will generally be of the highest standards. Reproduction: A reproduction is a copy of an original poster that hasn’t authorised [...]

Cinema Poster Grading System

By |2021-09-26T17:10:51+01:00August 30, 2020|Categories: Authenticity|

The posters on our site will likely have been used for promotional purposes when the movie was released or re-released. Having said that we strive to buy a quality of poster we would be happy to hang on our own wall or shop. No single standard exists for grading of cinema posters and different dealers and auctions houses may use different grading systems. For this reason, we thought it would be useful to do a comparison between our grading system and scores between 1 and 10 and alpha scores. Mint A+ 10 Near Mint A 9 Very Fine A- 8 [...]

Online art sales surge in 2020

By |2021-04-26T11:04:57+01:00July 31, 2020|Categories: Authenticity|

ArtTactic’s “2020 In Review” report which was published last week has produced some interesting findings. Art sales across all format at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Phillips - halved in the year to July 2020. Sales to July 2019 fell from $5.7bn to $2.9bn in 2020. However it is a 500% increase in online art sales at the big auction houses that catches the eye. Sales to July 2020 rose from $69m to $412m. While this may not signal a tetonic shift in fine art buying patterns, it does show an increased willingness by buyers to partake in such transactions online.
