After the original 1956 Greenport Theatre poster advertising the movie The Searchers. Greenport is on Long Island, New York locally known as the North Fork.
Offered here is a fine art reproduction of the original poster printed on 100% rag archival paper to preserve it for decades to come.
Vintage lobby cards were composed in wood type then hand printed in small numbers on heavy card stock. Very few originals remain as they were considered disposable. They are always a standard size, 14 × 22 inches, to fit displays that were installed in the theatre, in nearby restaurants, and on exterior walls around town. They were manually replaced whenever the movie changed. This version is 17½ × 25¼ inches in a custom white wood frame, ready to hang.
