Star Wars Posters





The Original online Science Fiction Movie Poster Shop! (click on a poster above)

...It all started many years ago with the purchase of an original Star Wars 'Oscars' quad movie poster (see A short history of the first British Star Wars posters) from the Vintage Magazine Shop in London's Brewer Street. Not since Kubrick's majestic 2001: A Space Odyssey had a science fiction film made such an impact on a cinema audience. Star Wars was to run for nearly a year in London.

Then, in the Summer of 1980, The Empire Strikes Back was released and I was about to be seduced by the dark side (collecting sci-fi movie posters). I was in North Wales on a short contract working in a small theatre in Colwyn Bay, when the local cinema screened Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The sequel was as impressive as the original, and I really wanted a copy of the poster. Not being near a movie poster shop I simply asked the cinema manager if I could have a spare poster when the run ended, and she kindly put one by for me. It had been folded and displayed, unlike my Star Wars poster, but that really didn't matter - this was a piece of cinema history, and I knew it. That's how my collection and passion for science fiction movies and film posters began.

Kubrick's unsurpassable 2001: A Space Odyssey was re-released on the big screen hot on the heels of Star Wars. At around that time I also saw Close Encounters of the Third Kind in March '78, John Carpenter's Dark Star (a late night showing), Star Trek The Motion Picture in '79 and Alien also in '79, Outland in '81 and then later Blade Runner and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, in '82. It was quite a run!

Today my passion for authentic science fiction vintage movie posters is as strong as ever. Theatrical posters, both old and new. Be it the vivid brush strokes of Tom Chantrell or the talents of a graphic artist behind a Mac, the job of the movie poster is the same now as it always has been - to lure audiences into the cinema. No doubt some of the sci-fi movie posters of today will take their place beside the classics of yesterday. And trying to predict which is half the fun - with some titles turning into very sound investments along the way. Every year more and more people discover the pleasure of owning an authentic piece of cinema history; it is my hope that our online movie poster shop will assist with that endeavour.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut - Ritzy, London WC2, November 2007.

Ridley Scott's digitally revisited masterpiece enjoyed a very limited cinema screening in the UK in November and December 2007, before its nationwide DVD release. The British quad poster (above, with added red 'date banner' below the main title) was distributed to just a handful of UK cinemas.

I hope you enjoy looking through my collection of vintage sci-fi film posters. I only sell original 'theatrical release' science fiction posters (not to be confused with 'souvenir' type mass-market reproductions) that I collected over the years. You'll find British Quads and US One Sheets, but also US Half Sheets, Japanese Hansai B2s, French, German and Polish posters and others from around the world. The vintage posters are indexed A-Z and 1-9 and there are also dedicated Star Wars and Star Trek sections for fans.


Whether a seasoned film poster collector, or someone simply looking to purchase one or two authentic original movie posters for your home, I am sure your purchases will bring you great pleasure for many years to come.

Movie Poster of the Month


The Film Poster of the Month for July 2024 is this British quad for The Last Starfighter from 40 years ago... I remember seeing it in London when it came out. No Star Wars but it had some real charm.
