Macon, GA, USA, March 16, 2023 -- Newly formed Opportunities 2 Auction House, based in Macon, will introduce itself to the collecting community with an online auction of original, unrestored vintage movie posters on Saturday, April 15th, starting at 10 am Eastern time. Over 140 lots will come up for bid from a single consignor. The catalog is live now and open for bidding, on LiveAuctioneers.com.

“These posters were purchased in the ‘90s from the estate of a theater proprietor,” said Karen Braswell, the owner of Opportunities 2 Auction House. “They’ve been stored ever since and have never been traded or sold. It’s like opening a time capsule. Many were never used for display and were still in the envelope, as originally shipped to the theater.”

The posters span four decades, from the 1960s to the 1990s. They include all genres, from action/adventure to musicals to horror, so there is something for just about anyone who’s ever been a fan of the movies or is a collector of movie posters. The collection includes inserts, door panels, one- and three-sheet posters and a Rolling Stones theater display. ...

Highlights will include style A and B one-sheet posters for Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). The style B example is 27 inches by 41 inches and features artwork by Robert McCall. A one-sheet poster of the same size (standard for a one-sheet) for JAWS (Universal, 1975), directed by Steven Spielberg, with Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, is visually arresting, with the iconic shark graphic.

James Bond fans will be treated to multiple offerings, including one-sheet and three-sheet versions of the poster for Thunderball (United Artists, 1965). The one-sheet, 27 inches by 41 inches, is the preferred version, as it features the back of the jet on 007 Bond’s back, extending above a green border. The three-sheet version is 41 inches by 84 inches. Both feature artwork by Robert McGinnis and Frank McCarthy. Also up for bid is a one-sheet poster for You Only Live Twice (United Artists, 1967), Style C, artwork by Mr. McGinnis.
