We are passionate about the cinema and have been collectors of original film posters for over 30 years. We specialise in film noir from the classic period (approximately 1940 to 1960), classic films of the 1970s, cult movies, Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood and much more.

A number of posters in our collection have already been professionally linen-backed and/or restored and are ready to frame and display. All other posters will display perfectly well as they are too, but keen collectors may wish to undertake further restoration and/or backing to preserve them and display them.

Trends come and go, with some collectors concentrating on specific genres (e.g science fiction and horror movies from the 1950s, film noir or Westerns), particular movie stars, or even types of poster. We built up our collection not from following any trends, however - we just bought posters because we knew and loved the films.

As a general guide, if a film is either famous or has cult classic status, and the more memorable the poster art (for example, by noted designers or artists such as Saul Bass, Bob Peak or Richard Amsel), then the more likely a poster is to be sought after, collectable and valuable. When all these things come together (a great film, a hard-to-find poster and great poster art) then you have a pretty safe investment and a relatively affordable piece of original poster art to display in your home or office and impress your friends. Of course, the best way to approach any hobby or collection is to simply buy what you really like and ignore trends!

What you can expect from Flicks Film Posters

  • We sell only original, vintage film posters - we do not sell any reproductions or reprints.
  • Unlike some dealers and auction houses, who might describe the condition of a poster very generously, sometimes using different images to the posters they actually sell, at Flicks we provide the image of the actual poster you are buying and will describe its condition honestly and accurately.
  • Our collection contains a number of quite hard-to-find posters. Almost all our posters are offered as single copy purchases, so if you see something you like, go for it! Once it's sold that's it and you may have missed a great opportunity to own an original piece of movie poster history.
