Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented on the upcoming auction: “After four successful Entertainment Memorabilia live auctions, we’re always looking for exciting new things to bring to collectors and our Cinema Poster Live Auction feels very much connected to our roots. We live and breathe movies — to us cinema history is something you can reach out and touch — so original poster art is as much a part of that as props and other memorabilia. In short, we’re thrilled to be working in this new market, and hope it will become a regular event.”

Operating since 1998, Prop Store founder Stephen Lane’s love for movies led him to begin hunting for the same props and costumes that were used to create his favourite films. He found that he could not only provide collectors with access to their most coveted pieces, but also establish archival standards for a new, pop-culture hybrid of fine art and memorabilia collecting – prop art. Prop Store handles prop disposal, sale, archive and auction services to production companies and distributors as well as fixed price item sale on its website.
