The Ritz Cinema in Rushden, Northamptonshire originally opened in 1937 and is still trading today but now as a bingo hall!
Recently an excellent haul of film posters from the 1960’s and early 1970’s was rescued from the cinema, and now we have the pleasurable task of auctioning them off to keen collectors and investors.
This collection will be sold on 2nd September 2015 as part of our dedicated film poster and memorabilia auction.
Clint Eastwood’s first Spaghetti Western “A Fistful of Dollars”
Steve McQueen rare film poster “On Any Sunday”
Some rare Hammer Horror Quads including "Taste the Blood of Dracula” starring Christopher Lee as Count Dracula including the tagline “Drinka Pinta Blood A Day”
Marlon Brando’s banned film “The Wild Ones”
Among the selection of science fiction film posters is “The Planet of The Apes” starring Charlton Heston.
And Western fans are well represented with "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "The Wild Bunch".
It is amazing that these posters have survived for so long and it's a great opportunity for buyers to bid on a fresh-to-the-market collection of such quality.
