Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented on the upcoming auction: "After four successful Entertainment Memorabilia live auctions, we're always looking for exciting new things to bring to collectors and our Cinema Poster Live Auction feels very much connected to our roots. We live and breathe movies - to us cinema history is something you can reach out and touch - so original poster art is as much a part of that as props and other memorabilia. In short, we're thrilled to be working in this new market, and hope it will become a regular event."
