    What is best and cheapest place to buy movie posters? Although the best and cheapest usually never go hand in hand. At the moment i am interested in getting posters of classic films.

    Are you interested in acquiring original posters or re-prints? I have quite a few links that I could provide if you're looking for originals.

    I have used www.pixposters.com (they actually got me the Goldmember teaser poster after it was recalled [​IMG] ) and www.movieposters.com
    Both these guys carry original and reprint posters (I find that pixposters carries more original posters though)

    Many years ago, I used to order movie posters from Cinema City, and they were excellent. Their catalog is very large, but they show only a small subset on their website.

    MoviePoster.com has a great selection of posters. Lucky for me, they are located right here in Toronto so I know they have good stuff.

    Are most movie posters at 27" x 40"? I'd prefer to have them at 24" x 36" since it's easier (and more affordable) to find frames at that size.

    Yes, most regular-sized (i.e., "one-sheet") movie posters are 27x40" or 27x41".

    You want to get an original one sheet and double sided AOTC poster. Its much better quality than a reprint. The star wars fan club has what may be original one-sided posters for $9.99. swfan.wizards.com. You can call them to confirm.
