We recently acquired a small collection of large-format, vintage movie posters dating from the late 1960s and early 70s. We're not sure what theater they originally came from, but I would suspect it was was one of the last, large movies palaces here in the Philadelphia area, as only an urban theater would have needed these huge posters for display.
These posters are 40" by 60" and printed on heavy card stock. This size is now known as a "Bus Shelter" and used in major cities in the pre-fab metal shelters found at bus stops, but decades ago, the size would have been used in frames at large first-run theaters.
This is an original theatrical poster for the 1972 movie "The Hot Rock". It's a Robert Redford/George Segal buddy/heist/comedy where everything that can go wrong during and after a robbery hilariously does.
It's 40" by 60".
Condition: There's a short closed tear in the bottom margin, mild wear to the edges, otherwise fine, clean and bright.
