Lobby Cards

Lobby Cards are no longer used in U.S. theaters and are rarely produced for today's films. These small movie posters (usually 11"x14" in a landscape, or horizontal format, printed on card stock) were generally produced in sets of eight, although the number of cards in a set can vary from as few as four to as many as 16.

As the name suggests, these small movie posters were designed for display in a theater's lobby or foyer with the intention of luring patrons into the theater by showing glimpses of key scenes from the movie. A lobby card set typically consists of one Title Card (TC), a lobby card of special design usually depicting all key stars, listing credits and designed to represent the entire film rather than a single scene, and seven Scene Cards (SC), each depicting a different scene from the movie,

I have been collecting original horror and sci-fi lobby cards for many years and have accumulated over 600!! I bought 1 card from a movie that I am interested in. The card depicts a great scene from the movie, the Title card usually are the coolest that include great art and graphics, but are more expensive. 

The following pages show many images of my cards but the pics are taken from the internet and not directly from the cards that I have hanging on my walls. The lobby cards that I have are hung up all over my basement and computer room as you can see from some of the pics on this page.
