Poster Measures 42×84 Inches. This Return of the Jedi three sheet is undoubtedly one of the nicest and rarest original Star Wars posters from the vintage era. It’s also one of the most important to own. This unique 42×84 inch poster was made back in 1983 to advertise the first release of the third Star Wars film, “The Return of the Jedi” This poster was printed in two sections (see the original printer’s paper hanger stamp on the back of the poster in photo #2). Printing a poster in sections was a standard practice back in the 1980′s – that is – if a poster was over 77 inches tall, which this out-of-home 3-sheet is. Billboards, kiosks, sun-shelters, etc. Out-of-home also includes other venues accessible to the public: malls, airports, transit systems, supermarkets, toy stores, etc. Distribution, format, and, sizes of out-of-home movie posters differ from those displayed at theaters. The out-of-home media industry requires studios to rent display space on already existing advertising boards and in already existing display cases, whereas movie theater posters were displayed free by the theaters. Keep in mind, most of the out-of-home posters were pasted up and destroyed when they were originally used. This is why they’re soooo rare! There was no theatrical 3-sheets made on Jedi. The National Screen Service (NSS) issued a 3-sheet on Star Wars in 1977, and in 1980 they issued a 3-sheet on The Empire Strikes Back, but NOT Jedi in’83! The National Screen Service suspended making 3-sheet and 6-sheet posters in the early 1980′s. Luckily, for Star Wars collectors, the out-of-home advertising industry continued to use them, and so this great Jedi poster exists, but ONLY in a very limited quantity. This poster is one of the lucky survivors. Happily, this out-of-home 3-sheet poster is almost the same size as the Star Wars and the Empire NSS counterparts, and so if you’re looking to put together a set of 3-sheets on the original trilogy this poster will look great besides the other two. This Jedi 3-sheet is in. SOLID C9/C10 UNUSED ORIGINAL CONDITION! This is considered the NICEST Return of the Jedi poster issued on the film back in 1983. The vertical configuration of the original art fills this large-sized format PERFECTLY, unlike the awkward 6-sheet on the film where they try to fit this art onto a square poster by adding a huge black box on the left and the right. Additionally, this 3-sheet size is more difficult to find than the 6-sheet, which is actually quite rare in its own right. You won’t be able to find a nicer one, that is if you can find one at all. Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthony Daniels…. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock – Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won’t inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society. This poster is definitely ECONOMY PROOF! Please write with any questions.
