Experience With movieposters.com?
« on: April 05, 2021, 12:21:35 PM »
Hello, does anyone here have experience with movieposters.com?
They seem the be the only ones who have a one sheet for a movie I'm looking for, but I'm not sure if they are legitimate or not.
Said movie poster is from 1985, they have both folded and rolled, reasonably priced.
Should I go for it, or are they likely fakes?

I'm new to collecting but I've made one purchase from them and I'm almost certain the posters I got from them were authentic. I was also a bit wary to buy from them but I couldn't really find anything about them when I searched the forum. Probably means they're good? I'd be curious to know if some of the more experienced collectors have had experience with them.

I have not used them but their inventory has a section for Originals so if you shop from there they are clearly described as such. Use PayPal or a major credit card and you will be able to get your money back if the poster turns out to be fake.

They are legit -- their originals are originals. 

They can be pricey and their packaging is subpar compared to Emovie, but you can't win 'em all I guess.

Yeah, I too concur with all of that.

This company originated from one of the Canadian distribution hubs (NSS if you will). Shelly Candel is the owner, but David mainly runs things these days it seems. Anyway, the stuff listed as originals are originals. They also handle a variety of reprints, but they are clearly marked as such.

They have their store about half hour or so away from me. And have been there many times before... Like others have said Originals are original, but can be a bit pricey.
Just dealt with them this past week and placed an order..

Thank you very much for the replies everyone.
I went ahead and bought the posters from them and they shipped today.
I'm looking forward to them as I haven't seen them for sale anywhere else and though I'd never find them!
