What is your Favorite movie poster? (Looking for decor suggestions)

I will soon be constructing a home theater room and plan on decorating it with several classic movie posters.

I will definitely be putting this one up:



I love the classy look of this one. I know it's not the actual movie poster but I have one of these that looks just like the above with "Star Wars" in the familar font on the bottom. It is a little worn since I displayed it for years when I was a kid but I'm going to get it touched up (if I can't find one in better condition).

What are some of your favorite posters? I'm looking for those that have a classic, memorable look to go in my room. In other words, I'm not looking for contemporary movie posters.

Don't know how old you like them, but...


My favorite could be any of these.

Check this site out: http://www.brucehershenson.com/secti...gital+reprints

The have a ton of old movie poster reprints, and for pretty cheap too. They're only 11"x17", but they look great.

I have these up amongst others:









Grabbed a couple of cheap metal frames from Ikea, and that was that.

I got all mine from www.allposters.com and www.moviegoods.com

I have just these 3 framed and hanging up currently. (Soon I'll have more once I get them framed.)

Here's a couple that I had laminated:


Classic no-frills looks good in a somber setting!



I like it better than the "traditional" Crow poster



The poster says it all

I hate to bombard everyone with an FYI, but I noticed walmart is now carrying 27x40 movier poster frames for $18.88. I about flipped. I've had a difficult time trying to find these, and didn't want to pay out the ass. They look really good so I bought 6.

Yeah, those Empire Strikes Back and the classic King Kong posters are great. Love that Raiders poste. Gotta get one of those Jaws posters, too. Keep it up, I'm getting good ideas

I'm still waiting for my Spiderman 2, Sky Captain and the Worlds of Tomorrow, Blade Runner, and Dark Crystal posters to be framed.

I have these three:
