If you’re so passionate about movies, why not decorate your room with movie posters? Well, I for one is getting my new entertainment room ready and I thought having movie posters on my wall will give my room a more cinema-like feel.
One problem I had was that it’s pretty difficult to get posters here in Singapore. I wanted to order them online but posters are something you need to see and feel before purchase. Besides, I can’t wait for shipping time!
Then I realised a few years back, there was a shop in Suntec City selling posters and movie stuffs. A quick search in Google revealed that the shop has shifted to the Esplanade in recent times. Behold, PopcornPop!
Despite the higher price of posters on it’s website, I decided to hop on to their shop. It’s a relative small shop but full on variety for movie fans. Their in-store catalog seemed to have more posters than their online catalog (for the case of “The day after tomorrow” poster, which I couldn’t find online).
The service is excellent, and their staff are young and friendly. They’re not “over-friendly”, so you get really comfortable taking time to browse their stuffs. Looking at the size of the posters, I got myself 3 original posters (see below). They’re all directed by Roland Emmerich and I’m a disaster movie fan.
They sell 3 types of posters. Original prints (mostly double sided for light boxes - for cinemas), Commercial posters (for retail, lower quality and slightly smaller) and Value prints (similar to commercial, but in high volume for mass market).
Prices vary a lot due to the demand of the movie itself. They also sell other movie memorabilias like key chains, magnets, etc. Look through their webby to know more. Frames for the posters turned out to be more expensive than the posters themselves, so I decided to get them from IKEA for much cheaper price.
Stay tuned for a segment on my new entertainment room, that’s when I’m done with it! Lastly, wishing all my readers a Happy 2010!
