My name is Kirby McDaniel and I
own MovieArt -- a Texas based company that buys, sells, and trades authentic
theatrical-release film posters.
MovieArt has been in business since
August of 1979 when I acquired 20,000 posters which had been in storage
in New Orleans. The first poster sales that I made were in the Student
Unions of various universities and colleges in the Texas-Oklahoma-Louisiana
area. Soon I was selling posters through ads in Movie Collector's World.
Then the phone began to ring, and
it seems I have been on the phone ever since. In fact most of the posters
that MovieArt sells are sold over the telephone. I enjoy talking with
customers and learning about what they collect, what they are looking
for..., and what they have that they might want to sell.
Of course, the Internet has become
a great marketplace for buying and selling posters, so MovieArt keeps
an Internet presence through our own website and on Ebay.com, selling
occasionally under the user id movieart*austin*tx*usa.
MovieArt also buys individual posters,
groups of posters, and entire collections. Do not sell your collection
until you have spoken with us.
