MACON — Original, unrestored vintage movie posters will be for sale online April 15 through Opportunities 2 Auction House based in Macon.
The auction of over 140 items will begin at 10 a.m.
“These posters were purchased in the ‘90s from the estate of a theater proprietor,” said Karen Braswell, Opportunities 2 Auction House owner. “They’ve been stored ever since and have never been traded or sold. It’s like opening a time capsule. Many were never used for display and were still in the envelope, as originally shipped to the theater.”
Braswell said the posters span four decades, from the 1960s to the 1990s. The posters represent all genres, from action/adventure to musicals to horror.
“There is something for just about anyone who’s ever been a fan of the movies or is a collector of movie posters. The collection includes inserts, door panels, one- and three-sheet posters and a Rolling Stones theater display,” Braswell added.
Some of the highlights up for auction include:
