Here are some descriptions of our most popular 1980s Movie Posters.

  • #1. Jaws

    Millions of people vowed never to step in ocean water again after seeing this popular Steven Spielberg horror movie in 1975 featuring Roy Schneider, Richard Dreyfus, and Robert Shaw.

    Amongst our collection for sale is a featured Jaws movie poster from Turkey that depicts a terrifying shark and a woman being devoured in a bathing suit by the shark. This one is an instantly recognized classic.

  • #2. The Shining

    This is is a real beauty, because it is a Silkscreen Poster approved personally by
    Director Stanley Kubrick.

    The Shining is a 1980 film featuring Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duval about a would-be writer and a part-time caretaker left alone to take care of a resort hotel in the winter. Jack, listed as Jack Torrance in the film, gradually goes crazy and nearly kills his family.

    The most popular movie poster features the iconic image of a haunting Jack Torrance looking ominous through a door opening.

  • #4. Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Featuring Harrison Ford as explorer Indiana Jones, and Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood, this tale about getting to the Arc of the Covenant before the Nazis do is a classic Steven Spielberg's adventure.

    The larger poster has only Indy, in full color, while the smaller one features Indy with a whip, together with small portraits of the other castmates.

    A dramatic Ridley Scott Film released in 1982. Harrison Ford steps in to play police officer Rick Deckard and Sean Young plays the lovely, sexy replicant. The film is about a blade runner who must pursue and terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space.
