Australian Daybill Movie Posters measured approximately 15" x 40" or 38cm x 101cm from the 1920s through to the early 1940s and came with a border at the top for screening details. After that Australian Daybill Movie Posters mostly measured 13" x 30" or 33cm x 77cm (the size varied depending on year and studio). In the late 1980's, the Australian Daybill experienced another size variation as it was issued smaller in size - 13" x 26" or 33cm x 66cm. By the 1990's, Daybill Movie Posters became mini in size - 50-55cm x 34-35cm and were either issued folded once in the middle or not at all. By about 1995 Daybill posters ceased production all together and thus they have become scarce and now highly sort after. This is because of their full artwork in many cases and unique size that is ideal for framing.If you cannot find what the Daybill poster you are after from the range below, contact All About Movies.
Australian One Sheet movie posters measured approximately 27" x 40" or 68cm x 100cm post 1985.Prior to that, Australian One Sheet movie posters were slightly larger in size typically 27" x 41" or 68cm x 104cm approx. Although Australian One Sheet movie posters were made for most U.S. movies of the 1920s to 1950s (sometimes with similar art, sometimes with different art), they were often more rare than the corresponding U.S. movie poster - possibly as few as 200 One Sheet movie posters were printed for films up to 1950.These factors explain the rarity of the Australian One Sheet movie poster when compared to the USA one sheet movie poster in some cases.Printed on paper stock the movie posters pre-1985 were issued to the cinemas folded and post 1985 movie posters were issued rolled mostly with some exceptions.

Most Lobby Cards were numbered and had a different scene in colour appearing on each Lobby Card.Sometimes older movie Lobby Card sets included what was called a 'Title' Lobby Card which would be a ninth card.

For a period of time, Australian movie poster printers made what became known as Australian movie lobby card posters or Australian movie Photosheets. These movie posters combined six movie Lobby Card images with a credits banner at the bottom. Some frugal movie theatre owners would cut them up and use them as inferior movie poster Lobby Cards. The Australian movie poster Photosheet measures the same as or slightly larger than Australian one sheet movie posters and are normally folded in the same way. As cinema owners would normally cut them up, to find this type of movie poster intact is now quite rare and as they are no longer being made they have become highly collectible.

These magazines make great collectors items. They were published up to 35 years ago and have detailed information about the films of the day along with poster artwork that was being used to promote the various films in some instances. They often included information about movie soundtracks, Bios on stars of the day, mini pull out posters, movie crosswords to test your knowledge (none of the magazines here have had the crosswords used) and more. Most of all they represent how movie collectors learn't about movies prior to the internet - enjoy collecting!
Australian Daybill Movie Posters have had a history of almost always being issued by the printer (M.A.P.S / Robert Burton / W.E. Smith and a few others) machine folded twice. Certainly not a sign of an imperfection but rather the format of the day. Below are a selection of Daybills that would normally only be available folded but are actually rolled with NO FOLDS. This collection came from a collector who worked for the printing company M.A.P.S.We believe this represents a great opportunity for the collector to have a one of a kind. Also included below are other rolled Daybills that were issued rolled (as they were released) more recently that way. As always if you cannot find what you are after on our website contact All About Movies.
