We love movie posters. We believe they are important historical artifacts that tell us about who are and where we come from.  And they’re fun!

Movie Poster Archives is a 501(c)3 nonprofit headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our massive archives are not open to the public. That’s why we’re working hard to build a virtual museum on this website.

An important means of support for MPA is the Lagniappe Shop. Lagniappe means “something extra” and it’s where we sell the extra items donated to the archives. They may be duplicates or not a great fit for our mission. Each item is carefully described so you know what you’re getting. Prices are reasonable. So start building or add to your collection here.

Enjoy your visit to our site.
