What is the difference between a Double Sided and Single Sided Cinema Poster?

By |2022-05-19T17:41:41+01:00May 19, 2022|Categories: Collecting, Poster Art|

A single-sided poster is white on the reverse. Generally, posters that were printed before the year 2000 will be single-sided. A Double-sided poster has the exact same image printed on the reverse. This makes them harder and more expensive to print. An example of this can be seen in the Spectre photo in the article image.  The reason posters are printed double-sided is to enable the poster to be put in a cinema lightbox. Shining a light behind a double-sided poster illuminates the colors of the poster. Without a lightbox being used a single-sided and double-sided poster will look exactly [...]

Our New Look Site

By |2021-11-15T19:02:24+00:00October 22, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Poster Size|

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 [...]

Cinema Posters in the News

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. According to an expert from the auction, while Sean Connery James Bond posters remain the most popular. However, Roger Moore James Bond posters have doubled in value in the last 5 years. Another point from [...]

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. [...]

The Beatles, and their music, are a gift that continues to give with new legions of fans constantly emerging. Merchandise and memorabilia associated with the band also remains hugely popular. Film's and documentaries about the Beatles probably now run into the hundreds. However, there are five motion pictures in which the band appear and these are considered the 'Beatles films'.
