PALM SPRINGS, CA – All good things must come to an end.  Lot 58 Auctions & Shops will host the final showing of the visiting Vintage Movie Poster Exhibit & Sale, this Sunday from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.  The special installation features the private collection of Nostalgia Palm Springs. Originally, the three week limited engagement  was scheduled to close right after Palm Springs Pride Weekend. The success of the show prompted curator John-Patrick and Lot 58 management to extend the run through the end of the month.

The Vintage Movie Poster Exhibit & Sale pays tribute to mid-century Hollywood and its impact on Palm Springs. Each of the 40 original, rare mid-century movie posters on display features stars who either lived in or spent a lot of time in Palm Springs. Nostalgia Palm Springs has done the research to connect each celebrity to the exact home they owned or stayed at while in town.

Film posters of this era (1950-1975) were returned to the distributor after each movie then sent on to the next theater again and again. They often stayed in circulation for several years. As a result, many vintage film posters were badly worn. Those posters not returned were likely thrown away by the theater owner. Only a hand-full of some titles remain today. Most of the posters on display at Lot 58 are original (not modern reproductions) that were used during the heyday of Hollywood. Many show the signs of age that make them unique.

Visitors to the Vintage Movie Poster Exhibit can expect to  see official movie posters and lobby cards for mid-century classics like Palm Springs Weekend, Butterfield 8 starring Elizabeth Taylor, and the Long Long Trailer starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The Vintage Movie Poster Exhibit also features posters for movies headlined by those who made Palm Springs their home like Liberace, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Elvis Presley.

If You Go: Tell Kathy & Kevin that Acme House Co. sent you. No charge for admission. Plan on spending 40 minutes to an hour viewing the Vintage Movie Poster Exhibit. This will also be your opportunity to preview the mid-century modern furnishings, art and other decorative items that have been arriving in preparation for the next Lot 58 Auction to be held on November 28th at 5:00 pm. Lot 58 Auctions & Shops / 358/364 S. Indian Canyon, Palm Springs.
