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.
To have the chance to see some of your favourite memorabilia and props from some of your most beloved films, really is something quite special and unique. It’s a very rare opportunity so when you have the chance to see these random items and be up close and personal close to any of these objects, take it! I was lucky enough to have an exhibition in London so I went down to the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, London as Prop Store were holding a special event before their live auction, which took place on September 27.
What I saw made me have a huge geekgasm, it was very exciting and the perfect place for me! There were signed scripts and books, props from Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2, Star Trek, The Martian, 24, Gladiator and too many more to name. The auction has gone live and people are currently bidding thousands on items such as the Bat Pod, costumes from Star Trek, original storyboards from Star Wars, FBI badges from The X Files, clapperboards from countless films and a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
So if you’ve got a bottomless pit of cash, chances are you’ll be bidding on these items already! I know what I’d get first, the Batpod! Take a look and see what I saw the other day. What would you bid on?
Lucky me! 😉
