Classic Movies get new posters from Concert Poster Artists
In 2008 the Alamo DraftHouse Movie theater in Austin Texas,
started ordering posters for their classic movie showings from
established concert poster artists.
The posters were a revelation. They caused us to see these classic
movies in a new light. Some of the posters were even better than
the original posters.
To Illustrate this, I have culled a few of these posters for your perusal.
The question I ask of you as you look through posters, Are these posters a travesty,
a cheap sacrilege on the memory of the classic movies? or do they add and “embiggen”
the meaning of the movies in our culture?
Leave a comment to answer. I will choose one comment at random on May 1, 2010 and the
winner will receive his or choice of any 3 of the posters in our inventory.
