The Legacy

For 39 years, Dwight Cleveland has searched the globe for rare movie posters. What began as a love for the movies and an eye for the unique art of the film industry became the largest, most complete movie poster archive in the world. The archive includes every Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards and the top 100 films of all time as rated by The American Film Institute and The Internet Movie Database.

We are searching for the right home for the archive.

We are seeking the perfect home for these movie posters. They should be in a film archive, movie museum or film library where they can live on in perpetuity. We're looking for that one individual or institution that loves the movies enough to take this collection to the next level—to value, purchase and permanently house or donate it to the right institution. We're searching from Hollywood to Bollywood, to find that person. If you know an interested party, contact us through the site or share our story with the world.

Take some time and view these great posters. See all of our Press Coverage or find out more about Dwight Cleveland.
