"Movie lovers and memorabilia collectors delight! The Film Forum is having it's first-ever movie poster sale this summer. Stop by on June 26 to browse our collection of posters from films we've shown over the past several years. If you had your eye on that Red Riding Trilogy art, or always wanted to get your hands on a La Dolce Vita reproduction, now's your chance!"So off I went early Saturday morning. I probably should have gotten there earlier than I did, though I did beat the large swarm that arrived within 30 minutes of the official start time. It wasn't as though I nabbed anything I was dying to hang on a wall - but it was fun and at $1 / poster for members ($2 others) it was cheap entertainment. Ended up buying 7 posters, some honestly just because I'd trekked all the way over to NWFF. :-) My swag included:
- Chop Shop
- STIFF 2010 mini poster
- SIFF 2009 mini poster
- The Yes Men Save the Word
- Three Times (which was a mistake as I was thinking 3 Iron)
- The Red Riding Trilogy poster (pictured to the left)
All this reminds me that I miss SIFF's formerly annual poster auction event around the holidays...
