We at Limelight have been buying and selling original film posters and lobby cards for decades, enabling us to offer an unrivalled range of stock from our Gallery in Chelsea, London and from our website. We’ve been on the King’s Road for nearly twenty years. Our clients, new and old, can find the highest quality, most authentic pieces, many of which have been professionally conservation backed, for their collections, decoration or display. Our stock may change from day to day, but the quality of the pieces we offer is constant.
Film noir, neo-noir and “near noir” such as crime dramas and B movies, has produced many memorable images and powerful designs over the decades. Here’s just a selection of our stock.Original Noir and Crime Movie Posters and Lobby Cards
We love all the pieces that we sell, but sometimes we come across a piece that is so special that we add it to our Premier listing. It might be because of its rarity, or age, or value, or just because! So please click here if you’re hoping to find something really unusual or special.View Premier Collection
To complement our original film posters and lobby cards, we also offer a small collection of limited edition photographs. Printed using the best technology and materials by a leading London print lab, numbered and with Certificates of Authenticity, and produced in very low runs (as low as 7 for some images).
They are available exclusively from us (because we own the negatives and copyrights). When the runs are sold out, there won’t be any more!
If you’ve never bought an original film poster, here’s a short introduction. We explain what “original” means, and why film fans, collectors and people with an eye for something different to adorn their walls are deciding to buy this authentic movie art.Learn More
Original film posters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on where they are intended to be displayed at the cinema, and in what country. So you can usually find an original size (format) which will suit the space you have in mind. But because these are all original pieces, bear in mind that you can’t just select an image you like and ask for it in a particular size. Our Sizing Guide is designed to help you understand the sizes and to visualise the various formats as they might appear in your home, office or other intended location.Learn More
We are happy to ship worldwide. For most destinations and pieces we can tell you the cost straightaway. In some cases we may need a little more information. This guide will help you to see the costs and options, and explains our ordering, payment and returns procedures and policies.Learn More

We always love chatting to people in person, but we’ve also tried to make sure that our website gives you all the information and guidance that you may need when deciding what to buy – we understand that sometimes the sheer volume of choice can be a bit overwhelming.
But we also know that many of us like some face to face guidance, so we’ve put together a few short video clips to introduce you to some of the key topics. We’ll be adding to these regularly.
The most common US size and format is the One Sheet, but the smaller and rarer Half Sheet can be a very attractive option. Here’s a short introduction.
