Restored historic movie posters sold at film festival pop-up shop

Interested in owning a piece of history? You can if you head to the film festival pop up shop.

Jim Cook started collecting movie posters when he was 14. His dad got him a poster of “The Wizard of Oz” and the rest is history.

“Thousands of posters exist right now, sitting in my collection,” Cook said.

Cook restores each poster to its original glory.

“We restore them. We try to take the acids out of the paper. We repaire missing pieces. It becomes brittle and it gets pasted on linen to keep it from falling apart,” Cook said.

Now he’s selling them at the Film Festival Pop-Up Shop. Posters range in price and can be found in a number of different sizes.

The film festival store is located in the Regal Cinema Courtyard Plaza. It’s open every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
