Prop Store’s Movie Poster Exhibition

Prop Store is well-known for holding it’s annual movie memorabilia auction, selling all sorts of props from popular movies such as Star Wars, The Dark Knight Rises, Captain America, Teminator 2, Jurassic Park and many more. However this week they are doing something a little different. On until Friday 28th June, you can take a look at some of the most beautiful and iconic pieces of art ever known with their movie poster collection.


Getting ready to auction them off Prop Store is hosting an exhibition of some incredible posters which you won’t find anywhere else. Currently at the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, London, the memorabilia site is showing off it’s latest collection and they really are beautiful. Here are just a handful of what’s on offer.

The posters on display are being auctioned off on Friday and they are expected to make quite a bit of money. Including in the exhibition are pieces such as an original Dr. No poster, a rather colourful looking Jungle Book one as well as other classics such as Blade Runner, Apocalypse Now and Lawrence of Arabia. Also included is an extremely rare Star Wars: Revenge of the Jedi, the original title for Return of the Jedi, before the name change but not until after a few posters were made. This particular one is expected to fetch up to £3,000 at auction.

The entire collection is made up of about 400 posters from around 320 films (there are LOTS of funky Star Wars ones from all around the world) and if you would like to bid on any of the items you can visit the Prop Store website and check out all that they have on offer.

My 100th Post

This is my 100th blog post. It’s been a long road to get to this point but I think it’s been worth it. Recently I’ve started to follow more and more bloggers on WordPress as well as Twitter and it’s one hell of a community. There are some really wonderful film blogs out there, some very alternative ones, some interesting mainstream ones, those which cover classic films, the ones who love the indies. I urge you to check them out, here’s a few links to some really good ones I’ve seen.

I have done a lot too, been to so many things, events, cinemas, just had a great time since I started this blog. I’ve been to the London Film Festival twice (first time getting to meet Marion Cotillard and then meeting Ralph Fiennes), visited the brilliant and gorgeous Aubin Cinema, returned to the IMAX twice in one year (once for the Dark Knight Rises and once for Gravity), finally made it to the Rooftop Cinema Club in Shoreditch, been to the Harry Potter World at the Warner Brother Studios in Watford, watched countless films, bought countless DVDs (my collection recently surpassed 400), went to my very first film marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema, went to the awful Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, got to go to the James Bond in Motion exhibition, Sundance London’s first and second year and the VFX Festival which I didn’t even know existed until a few weeks before I went.  Here’s a few photos from the past two years

For this post, I wanted to include something a bit random and special. Vue Cinemas have kindly provided me with a link to this make-up tutorial to create a high street look similar to that of Angelina Jolie’s in Disney’s new film, Maleficent. A really good video tutorial with the talented Marcos Gurgel who has worked on several diverse projects including The Voice, Strictly Come Dancing, and on titles such as Radio Times, Sunday Times and OK! magazine. He has recently worked on shows during London and Paris Fashion weeks. Have a look below

I also wanted to include a few other images which I’ve seen recently, it’s a mix of all odds and sods, some new films, posters, random images of actors and the Batman exhibition opening in LA. Fingers crossed they bring that here.

As for the future of this blog, don’t worry this isn’t where I will sign off for good. In fact not a tall. I’ve got plenty of ideas coming up including an online film festival, visiting more unusual cinemas, going to more film festivals in London and around the country, interviews with those who are up and coming in the movie industry, once again staying up for the Oscars and just so much more I don’t want to tell you about just yet!

Thanks for reading and as ever, Keep. It. Reel
