The value of film posters is definitely on the rise – and although you’ll not find the cheapest ones in Christies Vintage Film Poster auction, you will find some of the most sought-after in the best condition.
There’s the usual selection of posters, dating from cinema’s earliest days through to latter-day cult items, with prices starting from around £200 and heading well into four figures. But if you want some real value, check out the bulk lots, like the Peter Sellers lot, which includes the poster above and 71 other Italian posters, including the likes of The Pink Panther, Dr Strangelove, Lolita and The Party. It’s estimated at around £250 – £400.
If that’s not to your taste, you can browse all the posters online at the Christies website. There’s plenty of good investments lurking there.
