We are The Art of Cinema and we run pop-up exhibitions of vintage and modern cinema posters in the foyers and cafes of cinemas and other arts venues. The private collection consists of all genres of movie posters: from Hitchcock films, featuring the particular graphic design genius of Saul Bass and other classic vintage images; through to modern redesigns by new young designers who have reimagined the classic images on silk screen prints.
The collection has been put together by former cinema manager Jeremy who has amassed a collection of over 1000 original and vintage film posters. Now a trained conservation framer he frames in order to extend the poster’s life: to protect and preserve their delicate ink and paper. All our wooden frames are hand-built to size and hold the posters free floating (ie not stuck down) in an acid-free mount board, all things which should allow the posters to live longer and to continue to rise in value.
Many avid cinema fans now love to collect posters, and many of our best known images and designs have become collectors items. Prices of some of the pieces have rocketed as interest in these images has grown, even though they were never originally intended to be works of art.
