Hello.
I was curious to ask the opinion of members here.
Since I love films so much, I'd like my apartment to reflect that, and I'd like to hang some film posters.

Thought to start from the bedroom because I bought a new bedroom recently, and some great handmade table lights, and the thing is missing is a large painting over the bed.
Do you think a film poster would work in this room?
My bedroom is very minimalistic and I also love old films and posters so I'm interested in posters up to 1990 the most.

Do you have any film posters in your bedroom?

Just now I got an idea about something like this (ok, it's not a poster), but maybe it creates much tension?

Really I don't know what I should hang.
My tastes are somehow peculiar.
I love this for example, but it would fit a kid's room.

Yeah, I think I would avoid putting that first picture in the bedroom. It gives a kind of frightening impression.

Why not something a bit romantic?

I believe this very poster can be seen in the bedroom of Woody Allen's "Play It, Again, Sam".

Indeed, our tastes for what shall hang in the bedroom will be most assuredly a highly personalized and individual matter.
But, I for one, go along with Aaron Silverman.
Down the road, I plan to showcase either "Reds" or "Romeo & Juliet" (1968).
For some, I would imagine the charm and/or nostalgia of the paper folds to play a part in it all;
but I would personally strive for the most minted rolled poster, on heavy paper stock.
Custom-Framed, of course.:thumbs-up-smiley:

P.S. For those of you who are single, I would steer clear of displaying "Psycho"; at least in the bedroom, that is.:lol::laugh::lol:

Oh I miss the days of being single. I too filled my apartment(s) with all kinds of fun movie posters and memorabilia. Good times.

All were retired after marriage. :(

I might add, for those who are single, that you may also want to avoid a bedroom poster of "A Bridge Too Far".
Just the title alone could send the wrong message or jinx your entire night.;)

And while we're on the subject of posters.
Name THE one poster you most cherished from your collection (past or present);
and name THE one poster you wished you could afford or find.

Thank you for your replies.

I love very much Drew Struzan posters, but I don't think this style would fit the minimalistic bedroom I have in mind. (maybe in the sitting room).
Another one (post 1990) that I thought of, and I love the film and can connect to the character too (ahem.. :P) is this:

(also Swan Lake was my favourite music in my childhood when I started loving classical music)

Searching, I found John Alvin art too.

E.T. is my favourite movie and I love this, but still I think is not suitable.

Beauty and the Beast is my favourite animation film.
This looks good and simple enough.

Also, I like these "studies":

i think this style is along the lines I'm looking for with not many colors too, but I don't think I love the movie enough to have the poster in my bedroom:

I'll search for some more of this artist.

OMG!
I don't want to think about it!

anyway, after much thought I resulted that in my minimalistic bedroom the style that could fit would be something simpler and more rough than detailed drawings and thought of cubism (inspired by film of course).
Something along these lines:

Jean_Metzinger,_1910-11,_Deux_Nus_(Two_Nudes,_Two_Women),_oil_on_canvas,_92_x_66_cm,_Gothenburg_Museum_of_Art,_Sweden.jpg

either from Black Swan (I connect very much to this) or A Streetcar named desire (raw passion)

It's not in the bedrooms, but it's part of my extensive 2001 poster/print collection.
