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), [...]

The more eagle-eyed and loyal of our site visitors may have noticed that the website looks a little bit different. The fonts and colours are a little different, but a much more significant change has been made on the gallery page (https://www.cinemapostergallery.co.uk/gallery/). We have added a bunch of filters and you can now run searches for posters related to your favorite director, actor and film franchise. We have yet to populate some of the data fields for a given poster but when we do, one will be able to do poster searches for the most obscure film directors. We have [...]

By |2021-09-04T08:20:34+01:00August 28, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Investment, Poster Art|

Cinema Posters made the national newspapers this week in the form of an article in the Telegraph, accompanied by an image of a UK cinema poster for 'For Your Eyes Only'. The reason for the coverage, as is often the case, is an upcoming auction at Sotheby's. The auction takes place on 7th September 21 and the full catalogue can be found on Sotheby's website.

Most Coveted Modern Batman Poster?

Country of Origin Cinema Posters

By |2021-12-08T16:32:42+00:00June 26, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Poster Size|

A country of origin cinema poster comes from the country a film was made. UK Quads for the James Bond franchise or a US One Sheet for the film Jaws are considered to be country of origin posters. As a rule of thumb, these posters are more desirable than non-country of origin posters. Quad posters for Dr No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger trade at multiples of the prices of the US posters. However, the UK artwork for these films is considered to be better and this explains some of the difference in price. To make a better like [...]
