By Author Info  |  August 17, 2018

Sotheby’s in London is selling 164 rare, original film posters including one that can lay claim to be the world’s first—an advertisement for the culture-shifting screening of the first film ever by the Lumiere Brothers from 1895. Created by French artist Henri Brispot, it depicts a throng of people waiting to see the first motion picture. 163 other posters, including James Bond posters and posters for films including 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and King Kong will all go to the highest bidder.
