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 "Take the Money and Run", which was Woody Allen's directorial debut (he'd credited as director on "Tiger Lily", but this is the first film he wrote and shot himself). All of the posters for this film seem to be variations on this theme of the mug shot of Allen with a quotes or quotes from the press, surrounded by a decorative border.
The poster is 40" by 60".
Condition: some wear to the edges, otherwise fine.
