Here is a few from my collection hanging in my basement HT. All are double sided original one sheets, except for Raiders which is a reprint. I've got lots more I would like to frame and hang but space is limited. I guess I could start using the walls in the stairway.

I'd love to have one of the posters from the original release of Empire Strikes Back, IMO its one of the most beautiful posters ever made.

Can't answer for Terminator, but I can for myself.

27x40 I tend to shop the sales at Michaels and pick up the $30 specials.

Other sizes, including 27x41 (older 1 sheets) I mostly buy from Sue at Hollywoodposterframes.com or Robert at spotlightdisplays.com. Look over in the lightbox thread for a discount code for spotlight.

My frames are just cheap frames I picked up at Wal-Mart. They are $20.

I have an autographed Sopranos, Autographed Kate and Leopold as well as Pulp Fiction, Cars and Hairspray.

I generally get mine from Ebay or All Posters.

IMO why buy a double sided if you are going to frame it against a wall??

As long as it's in a nice frame with little to no wrinkles/imperfections then it's good by me.

I too am in the market for some new posters, kids are bigger and wifey has given me the green light to upgrade/remod the theater room.

Make it a Great Day,

Shawn

I mounted these with the spacing even between the speaker, but thinking I should make the space even between the posters instead, probably will look better, please share your thoughts.

Camera phone was much quicker, forgive me

Let me preceed this with: Collect what you like and be happy with what gives you pleasure.

The reason I was recommending double sided for new posters is that it is difficult to counterfit them. Anyone with a large flatbed scanner can copy a single sided poster and create a stack of repros. Most modern popular movies have a whole bunch of dealers selling repros. The problem is that folks like TLOCE and others will take these same repros and sell them as originals at a high price.

If you just want something that looks nice on the wall, go ahead and buy the cheap repro. It will look great from anything more than 5' away. I realize that I am part of a small group that worries about originality and collectability, but I am just trying to help folks be better informed. I am not putting down repros, just trying to prevent you all from buying them at inflated prices.

There are some mixed feelings in the community about autographed items. In general they tend to be price neutral, or even hurt the value of the poster. The problem is that if you buy online, you have no way of knowing that the celebrity actually signed the item. A vast majority are signed by some random person and often the signature doesn't even match that of the celebrity. Certificates of authenticity are also meaningless as they are created on inkjet printers and signed by random people as well. The best bet is to go and get it signed yourself, and then keep it. Have a picture taken of you standing next to the celebrity while the item is being signed. Even then, there have been instances where someone gets an item signed and then sells off ten copies using the same photograph. In general, get signatures for uyour pleasure, not for collectability.

Going to go with a different route in my media room than most everyone. These posters are smaller and one side, but come on high end paper. Overall, I just wanted something different than the traditional movie posters.

Based on my research, if you are going to buy an original poster, you should probably put it into a poster frame that has UV-protection (to avoid fading), and make sure the back of the poster frame is acid free so that the paper doesn't warp or dry out.

Sue at hollywoodposterframes.com is very helpful if you have questions about caring for your posters.

Sue is an incredible resource. Very friendly and helpful.

UV protection is helpful, but is not a magic bullet. You still need to keep your poster out of direct or heavily reflected sunlight, or it will fade.

Acid free backing is never a bad thing, but the need depends on how long you plan to display, as well as the value of the poster. We are talking decades before a normal foam backing will affect a poster. I would not use brown cardboard backing, as that is highly acidic, but to many collectors the added cost of acid free foamboard is not worth it. This is obviously a controversial subject and has generated a lot of discussion.
