Larger in size and they tend to increase in value beside looking great. Crease and fold marks for one sheets used in theaters prior to 1990 is typical - maybe you never been to a theater before. Reprints are typically smaller. Some of these reprint posters don't have all the artwork/credits that the originals have and the frames are not that great in some cases (not all).


I pick up my movie poster frames from Hollywood poster frames.com and they can cut the frame to your size poster (whether it's original or reprint). The one I posted is an archival frame with a UV plexi front with acid free backing . No sun reflections at all. Very happy with it since it will preserve the poster and I've seen the same frames inside the studios - quality frame.
Again just mentioning in case someone could benefit from the info.

Like you said that's why we have choices.

Thanks. And that is why we have this specific thread dedicated to those who chose or are looking for BB posters.

By the way...your "UV plexi front with acid free backing with no sun reflections" has a huge reflection\\glare at the top from your camera flash. Not sure if you noticed in the pic you posted.

Hey everyone, this is actually my first post. I did some researching and found the website where you can actually order the movie posters. It is Blockbuster powered by Art Horizons. fpe-onlinedotcom/Blockbuster (sorry, it wont let me post URLs yet)

If you don't mind spending retail price, you can order pretty much any poster you want, instead of driving to every Blockbuster in your state looking for specific posters. Still, $29.99 is not bad, as these are really quality. I actually prefer these over glass frames with paper posters. Hope this helps everyone.

they typically do not sell to the public, but if you call them direct, they WILL sell you any that are on their website.


OR you can go through this website which is setup to do online sales, but doesn't include all the posters from the website above.

Does anyone know where this artwork can still be found? I got one of the Iron Man posters (where is just has half of the mask) and am trying to find another for my best friend. I managed to find one on Amazon being sold by Art Horizons (who apparently are the company that was previously known as Framed Picture Enterprises). The new one was not the same though. Instead of feeling overall textured, it felt like it had sharper more spaced out bumps or whatever you would call them. The color wasn't anywhere near as vivid either. I tried calling all the local blockbuster stores and got absolutely no help. Any ideas?

I am looking for those movie posters too but have had no luck finding anything. I've called all the remaining stores within a 300 mile radious but non of them know what I am talking about. Has anyone found a more recent web site where they sell these types of movie posters? if you do text me at 479- 236- 8887 or respond to this question.
thanks in advance!! Adam

Do you still have the posters and are they the "Textured" style movie posters that you used to be able to find at BlockBuster?

Did Bluckbuster ever produce that one? The actual movie poster was recalled after Heath Ledger's death and a good copy will now go for several hundred dollars. I have trouble believing that BB would produce one for video release.

I'm looking hard for the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom poster. I'd love to buy it off someone if anyone's willing to give it up. Also interested in the Crystal Skull poster, though for obvious reasons not quite as interested.

Anyway, please PM me if you've got a Temple and would be willing to sell!

Here is a pointer to an auction site that keeps a database of sales history. I did a search on Friday the 13th (1980) and 1 sheet for these results. Looks like $50-$90 is a fair price

You can go ebay. Both emovieposter.com and movieposterbid.com will accept consignments. They generally take 25-40% but their stuff generally sells for a premium price so it works out.

If you go to Ebay and type in the search bar "Textured Movie Poster"...you should see a few up on there!

Both of the auction sites I quoted periodically auction this. It is a common poster that generally sells for $25-50. Unfortunately emovieposter only has the australian daybill up this week and movieposterbid is between auctions. They sold one last week for $30.

Also be advised that there are three styles for the first release, so be aware of which one you want. Here is the auction results from emovieposter:

Handy site; thanks! But are these the framed / textured versions that were being discussed in this thread or more typical posters?
