They all look like they have never been folded either. Are they painted on a canvas of some kind?

They have been rolled up, some are better than others. The material on which are painted I'm not sure I have to research it

So would all of these be described as billboard-type posters?

I know you said some are only partial pieces, but meaning if the entire poster was available.

You mean they are meant to be used in Spain?  What city?  I've never seen painted posters in Spain.

They are from Spain, the city and the cinemas is difficult to know and even the artist who painted them that are not signatures.
These links are of as they were these posters in the cinema of that era

If you type into google: Cines antiguos de Madrid
You can see some example of this type of poster
