The Poster That Launched a Thousand Ships
I first became interested in collecting theatrical movie posters as a teenager. This was around the time I was discovering the films of Mel Brooks and one day, while in an antiques shop with my parents, happened upon an original 1974 U.S. one sheet for Young Frankenstein. At that moment I was hooked and have been collecting theatrical movie posters ever since.
Like any hobby, you collect what you love and most of the posters in my collection are from films I watched while growing up and have a particular affinity for. In some cases though, regardless of the movie itself, the artwork was just too good to pass up.
Theatrical movie posters come in multiple sizes, but my preference is for U.S. half sheets (22×28 inches) and U.S. one sheets (27×40 inches, 27×41 inches). I define a theatrical movie poster as being produced by or on behalf of a motion picture studio and intended for display during a film’s theatrical release. All the posters in my collection are from the film’s original theatrical release with the exception of the Vertigo 1996 re-release.
In summary, this website is a tribute to the eye-catching, jaw-dropping artwork that is theatrical movie posters. Enjoy!
