Not sure if any of these have been put up already though I didn't spot them but here's a few more covers,posters etc. I really dig -


 -

The awesome action drama The Principal (1987).


 -

The really fun teen comedy Mischief (1985).


 -

Is there anything more scary than the thought of Gary Busey staring through the window at you - the poster art for Hider In The House (1989).


 -

The excellent giant rat horror Of Unknown Origin (1983).

You are a man of exquisite taste.

Is it framed? What are your poster-hanging procedures? I'm currently trying to decide whether a plasterboard wall will take a framed movie poster...

On another note: I was happy to learn that Virginia Madsen has fond memories of this film, and she became good friends with Lenny Von Dohlen while making it - a friendship that endures to this day!

I'm a James Belushi fan. I actually love and have recorded (on VHS tape*) "The Principal".

Formulaic, but who cares!?!

So you didn't have to find the wooden joist or anything - you just put a fixing for plasterboard? (are those the ones that you use like a 'gun' thing for attaching?)

I had some snap frames a couple of years ago, but I found the stuff that went in front of the poster kind of opaque and dullish. I ended up getting some frames from the US (cost a fair bit, and then about two months later I got the FedEx import duty charge - ouch!)

Actually on the last one i put up the larger Psycho 3 quad poster I drilled the acquired six holes after using a mini spirit level to get the poster obviously straight and then just used plasterboard wall plugs similar to these http://www.screwfix.com/p/plasplugs-original-plasterboard-wall-fixings-grey-4-5mm-50-pack/1057K?kpid=1057K&cm_mmc=Google-_-Product%20Listing%20Ads-_-Sales%20Tracking-_-sales%20trac king%20url&cm_mmc=Google-_-Product%20Listing%20Ads-_-Sales%20Tracking-_-sales%20tracking%20url&gclid=CjwKEAjwtqe8BRCs-9DdpMOilBoSJAAyqWz_Bn40eSSt6Sz5wCpEDPO_kmS5ICLIjCjJKJXITfGdtho Czbjw_wcB and then just put in the screws,it was quite a quick and simple job but better with someone helping holding the frame to the wall!

It feels really sturdy and I believe it won't go anywhere.

My snap frames I got from Sign Holders Uk I think look great where as the snap frame I have for my Jack's Back movie poster came with a really dull and rather crappy looking protective sheeting!

I looked at those when I was getting snap-frames years ago, but I think I went somewhere else for them. The ones I got had a dull almost cloudy sheet of plastic that went over the pictures and I was never happy with them.

I was thinking of hanging mine via a wire they have on the back - like a normal picture. But if I remember correctly those snap frames come with screw holes in the corners that you use to attach them to the wall. Am I right? That would make them more stable and distribute the weight a little more than with something like a hook. Hmm... still not sure if the plasterboard could take the weight if it was just hanging on a hook...

Yeah Logan a snap frame would certainly distribute the weight better than a single hook as they have 6 or more screw holes with the screw holes being in either corner and in the centre's plus they come with the proper screws and fixings.

Some people just pin them to the wall but then you've got to take into account that your putting pinholes in your cherished poster it all depends on what your happy with.

No pins for mine! Not on a vintage poster! I have frames with a wire at the back. Really not sure about the weight distribution. I think the snap frame with fixtures along each edge is a good idea. Hmm... I still need to do some thinking!

Love The Principal Rock Vixen as do most People I know that have checked it out,Belushi and Gossett Jr are both great and it's one of those films that I think takes many people by surprise as to how entertaining it actually is!

Love the Police Academy 4 artwork,i think part 2 and 4 were my equal favourite's from the sequels and we're the only two that I watched in the theatres.

Part 3 was OK but I was not over keen on 5 and Part 6 I don't think I remember being that great either,never seen Mission To Moscow but by all accounts I'm probably doing myself a big favour!

Just picked up another quad poster from eBay for the mostly critically hammered but in my opinion rather entertaining late 80s action thriller Renegades with the great pairing of Kiether Sutherland and Lou Diamond Philips.

I like those collage posters, like the covers they used to have on Atari brand Atari games.
