    The collecting bug has hit and I am looking for a trustworthy and dependable site for buying movie posters. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who works in a movie theater and I think ebay is often over priced. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Michael. The last 2 look especially promising. Anyone have experience with these? Other suggestions?

    I loved Pix Posters when they had a retail store in Harvard Square; I haven't dealt with them since they moved into Somerville and went to mostly mail/web-order.

    I get mine from ebay. There are few reliable sellers on there that are a pleasure to deal with.

    Art.com has a pretty good selection and good prices.

    I've bought from them online 4 or 5 times, and have always been pleased. They usually have some rare stuff that other places don't have. Shipping time has ranged from quick to rather long, but I recommend them.

    I've bought a lot of posters from Allposters, and sometimes they ship a 27x39 reprint instead of the original 27x40. It doesn't bother me too much, but if you need the original 1-sheet, you might want to consider going elsewhere.
