Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented “After the success of our James Bond Cinema Poster Auction last year, we are delighted to offer over 340 lots from over 200 films in our forthcoming auction on Thursday 26th March 2020. We have some incredible lots going under the hammer from Star Wars, Bond, and many more iconic movies.”

Mark Hochman, Prop Store’s poster statedOur first cinema poster auction of 2020 includes an impressive collection of popular titles many of which have rarely appeared on the auction market in recent years (if ever) and includes not only original movie posters from around the globe, but artwork and the increasingly collectible area of ‘Mondo’ posters.  The provenance of this collection is exceptional and our Star Wars selection truly outstanding.”
