We have a large collection of original movie posters offered for sale. They include advertisements for the Greenport, NY (North Fork, Long Island) movie theater on Front Street which is down the block from our shop. These robust designs were composed using wood type and individually printed on manual offset platen presses one color at a time. The earliest one is 1926, but most are from the 1950-1970.
Note: this offering is for the original poster.
