Posteritati Movie Posters
Posteritati owner Sam Sarowitz has co-authored several books on movie posters, culled exclusively from Posteritati's own collection. Art of the Modern Movie Poster (Chronicle Books), published in late 2008, has been called a "truly magnificent, if not monumental, work. Featuring sharp mini-essays by Dave Kehr, this beautiful, full-color 516-page doorstopper of a book is an embarrassment of riches" (Film Comment, 2009). A "stunning work of visual scholarship" (NPR, 2008). An "encyclopaedic collection...from West Side Story to In the Mood for Love via Attack of the 50ft Woman, more than 1,500 selections place film posters firmly in the Pop Art pantheon" (Harper's Bazaar, 2009). Translating Hollywood (Mark Batty Publisher), a "handsome hardcover volume" (Leonard Maltin, 2008) "highlighting fascinating local interpretations of predominantly American films" (Vanity Fair, 2008), shows the major role played by graphic design in movie poster advertising and promotion around the world.
The Posteritati gallery is located in downtown New York City at 239 Centre Street between Broome and Grand Streets, directly across the street from the historic Police Building. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm, Sunday from noon to 6 pm, and Monday by appointment

Most movie posters prior to 1990 were folded by the printer before being shipped to theaters. Some of our posters have been linen or paper-mounted. This is done to preserve and/or restore the poster. These methods are archivally sound and museum approved. We can have any poster mounted for a fee. These range from $100 and up for a one sheet; $200 and up for a three sheet or large foreign poster; and $350 and up for a six sheet. We will also recommend restorers if you'd like to have it done yourself.
NM Near mint: May have the slightest of wear.
Fine: May have minimal wear with possible pinholes in the borders & or slight fold wear. Minor tape on the back & very small tears are also allowable as is slight fading.
VG-Fine: In slightly more used condition than fine, but still very presentable.
Very Good: May have some fold separation, border staining or small tears, but the image is still relatively clean.
Good: Slightly below average used condition. Can use restoration but is still fairly presentable.
Linen & paper backing are techniques used to restore & archivally protect posters as well as diminish the appearance of the fold lines evident in many posters (as most were originally folded at the printer and then sent to the theatre). The poster is affixed to archival paper which is then affixed to the linen (cloth) or paper backing. The process is archival and reversible. The linen-backed posters are then shipped rolled in a tube while the paper-backed ones are shipped flat as the paper is stiff. Many of our customers as well as museums and major auction houses use the technique. With linen-backing the posters display well and they look terrific. The process generally takes 2-3 weeks. The cost begins at $50-75 for smaller posters and increases depending on size and how much restoration is necessary. We will be happy to quote the cost of backing any poster with linen or paper.
We offer full archival framing services. Feel free to call or stop in to the gallery for a quote or more information.
