Below is a list of poster dealers and auction houses, most of which I have bought from or dealt with in the past and can heartily recommend as good places to search for that next poster purchase.
– The original shop that started me collecting movie posters. They have an enormous number of posters in stock and specialise in anything James Bond. If you’re ever in London I certainly recommend that you pop in for a chat. Just don’t blame me if you end up maxing out your credit card in there.Reel Poster Gallery (London, UK)
- Another London based gallery. Bruce Marchant and Tony Nourmand (who established the gallery back in 1991) not only have a great selection of posters for sale but have also produced a superb series of books which contain the best poster art of the past 70 years of cinema. SeeUseful Reading for more details.Quadbod (UK)
- Terry & Sue are specialised dealers of pre-1990 UK Quads. Always friendly to talk to and can be found at memorabilia fairs up and down the country.
- Formerly based in New York, now in New Jersey, MPAG is one of the best suppliers of vintage movie posters in the USA.FilmPosters.com
- Another excellent website with a massive stock of original film posters. Well worth checking out.Europosterman.com
- Excellent website of Netherlands based collector Loek Brobbel. Has a large international range of posters. Well worth a look.Cinemart.it
- Italian based dealer with a great website specialising in Italian movie posters.CineMasterpieces
- David Lieberman is a US dealer with a huge number of posters for sale. Also regularly sells on Ebay. Be sure to check this one out!Cinema Shop
- Excellent website based in Germany that sells a wide variety of original movie posters from around the world.Movie Posters Direct (UK)
- Premier On-Line store for Movie Posters, Film Cells and Movie Memorabilia
- Obvious I know! But it’s still probably the best place to look for any kind of movie poster (or anything else for that matter).Heritage Movie Posters
- Now with a dedicated web site, Heritage Movie Posters holds regular monthly auctions (soon to become weekly) along with larger Signature auctions which are usually held twice a year. A great place to look for any kind of poster.eMovieposter
- Bruce Hershenson, the owner of eMovieposter actually sells his posters on Ebay, but since he sells so many posters every year, he deserves a mention of his own! I’m sure every collector has bought something from Bruce at some time, and there’s a good reason why. Quite simply eMovieposter has developed a reputation that has yet to be surpassed on Ebay. If you buy from Bruce you’ll know that you’ll be getting not only a quality item but also with the best service around. Well worth bookmarking this site.
The big three are listed below, but since film memorabilia is only a small part of what they deal with you’ll have to check each site regularly for sale announcements. Posters will usually be categorised as “Popular Entertainment” or “Entertainment Memorablia”Christies
