A vintage one-sheet poster for the second installment of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky series, 1979's Rocky II. This is a great, graphic black and yellow poster with the simple tagline in the center: "The Story Continues" and Rocky Balboa in silhouette in the "Y" at the top.
This poster (along with many others we are offering) came from the same source: the Erlen Theater here in Philadelphia. The theater was between 18th and 19th on Cheltenham Avenue, at the edge of the city. It opened in 1930 and closed as a theater in 1984. It was a single-screen movie palace (one of the last built in the city) seating 1700 and built in the modern style. At the end of its life -the period from which these posters date- it apparently was hanging on on a steady diet of action/adventure, horror and kung-fu movies.
The poster is 27" by 41".
Condition: white lines along the folds, which are inevitable on mostly-black posters like this. Otherwise fine.
