    I am a huge fan of original movie paper such as posters and displays. I always love to see which posters that people have hanging in and around their home theaters and the rest of their homes.
    Here are some links to pictures of the posters that are in my theater room:
    Original Revenge of the Jedi One Sheet
    Star Wars R82 Half Sheet, Star Wars Style A Insert, Empire Strikes Back Style A Insert, Return of the Jedi Style B Insert
    Another View of Half Sheet and Inserts
    Also, although I don't have a picture, I have an Empire Strikes Back R82 Half Sheet in my theater room.
    Throughout the rest of the house, I have...
    Hallway:
    Star Wars Special Edition One Sheet
    Empire Strikes Back Special Edition One Sheet
    Return of the Jedi Special Edition One Sheet
    Bedroom:
    My wife is a HUGE Little Mermaid fan, so we have
    Little Mermaid R97 Advance One Sheet
    Little Mermaid R97 Release One Sheet
    I have a lot more posters (mostly newer Star Wars) that I don't have displayed. In addition, I recently acquired an original E.T. Insert poster that will be displayed soon...
    I would be interested in finding out what posters are in everyone else's theaters... Lists are fine, but some links to pictures would be GREAT!
    If this thread is a success, I will post links to pictures of my other posters within the next day or so.

    My theater is not built yet (in the framing stage), but the posters I have that are framed and ready to be displayed are:

    Braveheart (advance)
    Glory (advance)
    Saving Private Ryan
    Big
    Back to the Future
    Gladiator
    Star Wars TPM

    I plan on purchasing more posters (all originals, no reprintes here) and shuffling them around every once in awhile to keep things interesting.

    In various places in the house we have framed and on display(all original vintage):

    Rolled Star Wars Style A one sheet
    Half sheet size lobby poster for Apocalypse Now
    Lion King Style A one sheet signed by all the voice actors
    Jaws Style A Insert (the size of the half posters in the first post)

    Not on display we have The Right Stuff, Folded original Style A Empire and ROTJ, Rolled Ep 1 and 2.

    When also have some Broadway play posters as well. Next house will have a basement with a dedicated theater. Of course we'll have to buy some more art to fill the posters places.

    I only wanted posters of movies that I own on DVD. As my DVD collection grows, my poster collection will grow also.
