Rare movie posters found in Pa. attic are for sale
Rare movie posters found in Pa. attic to go on the auction block, could fetch $250,000 or more
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' A group of rare classic movie theater posters found in a northeastern Pennsylvania attic is going on the auction block.

The 33 posters from the Golden Age of Hollywood found in Berwick are expected to bring at least $250,000 at auction in Texas on March 23.

They were stuck together with wallpaper glue when they were purchased for around $30,000 at a country auction last fall.

The buyer, who is remaining anonymous, consigned them to Heritage Auctions in Dallas. That's where the stack of posters was steamed and separated over the course of several weeks.

The one expected to get the most bites from bidders is a 1931 poster for "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi. Actor Nicolas Cage sold an identical poster in 2009 for $310,000.
