There are several sizes of posters out there, and Michaels only has frames that fit a few.
Post 1992 1 sheet posters are 27x40 (earlier were 27x41). Michaels sells 2 poster frames that fit these. One is a cheap clip on over polycarbonate, and the other is a plastic frame that you can generally get for $25-30 on sale.
Half sheets are 22x28 and this is a common size. Unfortunately, the industry stopped making half sheet posters in the mid-80s, so this only works for classic titles.
Lobby cards are 11x14. Very common size with a lot of frames available. US stopped producing lobbies in the '90s, but they are still produced in smaller quantities for the european markets.
Michaels always has some sort of a sale, and I have never paid retail for a frame there.
