Film buffs and cinephiles of Hamilton, hear ye hear ye! One of the city’s iconic independent film houses, the Playhouse Cinema, is hosting an amazing online auction of movie posters that you should be getting in on.
Thousands of collectible film posters are currently being auctioned off online in support of the Playhouse Cinema and its Waterloo sister venue, Princess Cinemas, at a time when these beloved independent theatres are forced to shut their doors while the pandemic’s second wave rages on.

The vast range of posters up for auction features a countless number of rare finds from the personal collections of both the Playhouse Cinema and Princess Cinemas, with original posters from films widely spanning era and genre.
Many posters have a starting bid of $30 to $40, with some of the auction’s most competitive and rare items already climbing to bids as high as $800.
If you’re a movie lover or collector, this isn’t an opportunity you should pass up; especially because you’ll be helping out one of Hamilton’s best institutions and champions of independent cinema during a time when the screen remains dark and future is tenuous.
