A Word from the Owner

(continued from Front Page) To the film industry, movie posters were merely a commodity, intended to draw the audience into the cinema and designated to be used, re-used and eventually discarded.

Very much like most of my fellow dealers in this hobby, I initially started out as a collector. I‘ve been a collector all my life, buying records, comic books, and, at some point, vintage film posters.
While I always loved all kinds of posters, perhaps my 'one true love' has always been the American posters for the 1950s creature-feature monster flics. I bought my first posters in the 1980s, long before the advent of the internet. Unfortunately, my early buying opportunities were fairly limited. Without email, high phone costs and expensive snail mail, the USA could have well been on another planet. While the domestic market for vintage German posters seemed fairly established, with the top-titles selling for four-digit amouts, nobody in Germany seemed to offer the kind of oddball material I would see pictured in the occasional back-issue of 'Famous Monsters‘ magazine that I was able to find.
In 1996, a small stack of German arthouse posters and a plane ticket to New York changed this (and my life) forever. At that point, what had started as a personal collecting interest evolved into a serious business. Pretty much immediately I found myself buying, selling and trading international movie posters and doing business with dealers and collectors from all over the world. A fair number of lasting friendships had their beginning in these days.

The internet has changed our market in a way nobody could have dreamed of, and while I love to sell online, I started to miss the personal encounters and the chit-chat of the early days. Consequently, in 2004, I opened my first brick-and-mortar shop in Berlin, and after one year moved to Kreuzberg, where you can still find me today.

Many years later, I still love what I do. If I ever had hopes of getting rich, I've long abandoned them, but on a day-to-day basis one thing‘s still for sure: This business may have its ups and downs, but it most definitely beats getting a job!

All of the posters offered on this site have gone through my hands, and on the rare occasion, that I'm less than 100% sure of what I'm offering, you will find my this clearly expressed in the item description.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all posters on these pages are 100% guaranteed original cinema posters.

Of course, everything you see here can be viewed in person at the shop, so if you‘re in the area, please be sure to stop by.

For all of you who can't make it to Berlin: WE SHIP WORLDWIDE. Both our domestic and international shipping rates are very reasonable and always include tracking and insurance.

Just in case, if you want to discuss a possible purchase, consider selling your collection or individual posters, or if any other questions or concerns arise, please drop me a note using the contact link at the bottom of this page or simply give  me a call and I will be glad to assist you!

My best regards,

FAQ About Collecting Movie Posters


1. Why collect Movie Posters?

First of all, because it's fun! Almost everyone in every country and of every age enjoys watching movies. They have become one of the most dominant forces in both national and international culture. Movie posters are an excellent way to remember and admire the great films of the past.
Secondly, they look great framed on walls. Movie posters can be visually stunning, a snap-shot of the movie in one image equally as attractive as any work of art. Thirdly, they are affordable, a fair number of the posters offered by Galerie filmposter.net are priced between €20 and €100.
Fourthly, with people collecting all over the world it is a great hobby for anyone with an interest in film. Finally, movie posters can be a good investment. Since the first major auction at Christie's in 1991, movie posters have stood their ground in major league auctions. Sales results of the regular movie poster auctions held at top auction houses like Heritage and Christies are an obvious proof that the movie poster collecting market is very much alive and kickin'.


2. Are Movie Posters Collectable?

In 2005, a private collector paid $690,000 for an original 1927 German poster on the science fiction classic METROPOLIS, a world record that still stands today.  While obviously most posters will never sell for anything near this amount, it shows just how valuable vintage movie posters can become. Popular movie posters for titles like 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', early James Bond titles and 'Star Wars' regularly sell for hundreds and thousands of dollars; the latter movie being just over thirty years old.


3. What makes a Movie Poster collectable?

'Original movie art' materials are produced by movie studios for distribution directly to theatres and/or movie distribution centers. They are printed by a select group of lithographers. These materials are designed, produced and distributed solely as advertising materials. They are to be used for that purpose only and then either returned or destroyed after their use.
These advertising materials are never intended to be given, distributed or sold to the public under any circumstances. They are printed in limited numbers, in accordance with the needs of the theatres and/or movie distribution centers. This makes them harder to get, thus creating the limited supply. Most people regard video posters and poster reproductions as non-collectible, so they are usually of no or very little monetary value.


4. What affects the Price of a Movie Poster?

Numerous factors affect the price of a movie poster and these include: the popularity of the film, the importance of the film, the director, the stars, the condition of the poster, rarity, size, the age of the poster and of course the artwork itself.


5. Where do you get your posters from?

Galerie filmposter.net acquires posters directly from movie theaters, private collectors and reputable dealers around the world.


6. How do I know these Posters are genuine?

Every poster offered by Galerie filmposter.net (unless explicitly stated) is an original, vintage, theater-used poster. These posters were never commercially available and were only printed in the year of their issue. We have been in business since 1996 and we guarantee the authenticity of every single poster in our collection. The occasional art print or reproduction is explicitly labeled.


7. Do you buy Movie Posters?

We do. We're always interested in buying vintage quality movie paper from around the world. We buy anything from individual pieces to complete collections. If you have posters and you're considering to sell them, please CONTACT US for a free appraisal.


8. Why are so many of the posters folded?

A folded poster is not defective or always considered lower in value. Advertising materials released prior to the mid-1980s were usually machine folded and mailed flat to the local movie distributors/exhibitors. A rolled, original poster of 'Casablanca' from 1942 simply does not exist.
Different countries still use different methods of distribution. Most modern American posters are sent to theatres rolled and an unfolded poster from the last twenty years is almost always more valuable than one that has been folded.


9. Which Grading System do you use?

There is no universal grading system in the movie poster hobby, and the different grades within a system may vary considerably by the personal standards of the person or company grading the poster. That said, the following grading terms should merely help to give you a general idea of the condition. Please contact us for a more detailed condition report.

Galerie filmposter.net uses the following grading system:

MINT (M)
An unused, unfolded item in perfect condition, with only minimal wear (if any.)

NEAR MINT (NM)
Usually applies to folded, but otherwise mint movie posters or rolled posters with only minimal wear. Posters and lobby cards may have single pinholes in corners.

VERY FINE or FINE (VF/F)
A used film poster in overall excellent shape, but with minor signs of wear.
May have pinholes, smaller tears, light fading and slight overall wear.

VERY GOOD (VG)
An average, theatre used movie poster.
Several pinholes, tears, fading, tape stains, and/or minor paper loss may occur.

GOOD (G)
Heavy wear. Item will most likely show heavy fading and/or significant paper loss.
May still be presentable if framed. Items in Good condition are not recommended for the condition conscious collector.

FAIR/POOR
Below average, major defects.
Unless it is an extremely desirable title, we don't sell items in this condition.


10. What does 'Re-Release', 'Advance' or 'Doublesided' mean?

A re-release means that the poster was printed when the film was re-released. After its initial release in 199, 'Gone with the Wind has been released' has been re-released  about a dozen times in the US alone, so there are about twelve or thirteen different versions of the poster. Obviously the first issue is usually the most valuable but often the poster art is more definitive in defining value than the year alone.
An 'advance' or 'teaser advance' is a poster that is released before the film shows. It often has 'coming soon' or the date of release printed on the poster.
Since c. 1990 many posters have been printed double-sided which allows them to be placed on light boxes in cinemas. These posters are rarer than their singlesided counterparts and hence very collectable.


11. What does 'Linenbacking' or 'Paperbacking' mean?

Some of the film posters offered on this site are described as 'linenbacked' or 'paperbacked'. Linen- and paperbacking are techniques used to restore and archivally protect posters. The process also diminishes the appearance of the fold lines evident in many posters.
Here's how linenbacking works: The poster is affixed to archival paper which is then put on linen (actually, cotton canvas is more commonly used these days) and sometimes stiff paper stock is used instead of canvas. The process is archivally sound and reversible. Strictly non-acidic materials are used, and as part of the backing process the poster is de-acified, thus stopping the natural decay of the paper stock and preserving the poster for generations to come. Also, professional restoration can vastly improve the appearance of a movie poster. This procedure is internationally accepted, it is used by collectors, auction houses and archives worldwide.
We offer linenbacking and paperbacking as a customer service, please inquire for details.


12. Do you offer a framing service?

Yes. We usually have a small assortment of standard frames in stock and we also offer a top-quality archival framing service. Please inquire for details.


13. Why are they all different sizes?

Every country has different poster formats. Most countries have some variant of the 'one-sheet' format which usually measures around 69x104 cm (27x41 in). These posters are the most collectable but you should also keep an eye out for other sizes which are also produced for more unique purposes such as subway stations, movie theatre lobbies and advertising billboards. These sizes were usually printed in much lower quantities and are therefore considerably rarer.
The sizes of the posters can be found in the item descriptions. Sizes and designations differ according to their country of origin such as the A1 (Germany), One-Sheet, Halfsheet and Insert (USA), B2 and B1 (Japan), British Quad (Britain), or Daybill (Australia). An exception to the one-sheet size rule are France and Italy. These countries traditionally have rather large movie posters, a standard French Affiche measures app. 120x160 cm (47x63 in), the Italian Due-Folio and Quattro-Folio measure 100x140 cm (39x55 in) and 140x200 cm (55x79 in) respectively.


14. How do I preserve a Movie Poster?

Framing can help to preserve a movie poster but there are other factors to consider. Ideally they should be placed out of direct sunlight to avoid fading. In places with excessive humidity the paper can be affected if the frame is loosely fitted. If you have a large collection both in size and quantity, you may want to invest in flat file drawers.  They can be purchased in most larger art supply stores. Linen and paper backing are techniques used to restore and archivally protect posters.  More information about linenbacking and paperbacking can be found elsewhere on this page.


15. Do you sell Movie Poster Reproductions?

This website exclusively deals in original movie posters, the occasional art print or reproduction are explicitly labeled. We do offer a (very limited) selection of reprint posterts in our brick-and-mortar store. Galerie filmposter.net specializes in original vintage movie posters. Dealers for art prints and movie poster reproductions can be found elsewhere on the web.

Website: www.filmposter.net

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

6. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise's newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Galerie filmposter.net Inh. Helmut Hamm automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

11. Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor

On this website, the controller has integrated components of PayPal. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If the data subject chooses "PayPal" as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order.

The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by PayPal to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.

PayPal will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.

The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from PayPal. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal may be retrieved under https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

12. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

13. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

14. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

15. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

16. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
