to help you and/or your business grow
First, let me state that mission of LAMP is to document, preserve, and present any and all associated information on film accessories before the information is lost forever. Over 80% of the silent films made in the US are lost forever after spending 'billions' of dollars on film preservation. With ZERO dollars being spent on film accessory preservation, we believe there is also ZERO chance of their preservation without assistance. We have 1000s of articles available online and open to the public, PLUS the only cross-referenced database online because of the support and participation of the great dealers and suppliers from around the world that are helping to provide collectors this FREE information.
In addition, LAMP is THE forefront of research and preservation of advanced documentation into areas such as production codes for identifying unknown stills, lithography plate numbers, poster artists, printer tags and identification, NSS information, studio logo research and MUCH, MUCH more. This additional advance research from LAMP is being utilized by such clientele as the Academy, Smithsonian, major universities, 7 major auctions houses, film institutes and archivists around the world. This advanced research is available through LAMP Membership.
Knowledge is Power
If you are a collector, then we present that an educated collector is less likely to be taken and more likely to make intelligent decisions.
If you are a dealer, then we presnet that your education keeps you from making costly mistakes and allows you to utilize that knowledge to both, your clients and inventory acquisition.
We have 2 basic types of programs.
Membership or Sponsorship
Membership is for those that want access to research logs, books, larger images, and the advanced sections of LAMP. And for those that believe in what we're doing and want to support this crucial documentation of film accessories. We have both individual and company memberships available.

Sponsorship is for businesses that want to participate in LAMP programs for their business. This is let your business be seen to those utilizing LAMP in either basic support and/or participation in other LAMP Programs. Those interested in more information on this, please continue on this page....

The LAMP - Movie Poster Data Base is a huge unique database designed to document as many posters and cross reference them with articles and research. We allow dealers programming access which will very easily make direct links from the poster to a specific page on the dealers website. This lets collects who are doing research jump straight to your site when they find a poster of interest and lets you showcase your inventory in a high traffic location...
This program allows you complete control of each item with direct links to a particular page on your website AND the ability to attach your ENTIRE inventory. You simply look under whatever title you want, if you see the image that matches your poster, with 2 clicks the computer attaches it to your website. If you DON'T see the image, you simply attach a description of what you have just below the images, so collectors know what you have available..
