Double Bill Movie Posters!

Detail from a Hammer double bill poster

Ah, those were the days… when movies were often released as double bills in the theatres! Such fond memories!

Here’s a selection of double feature posters to feast your eyes on. As I hunted for cool examples to share I realised I had seen a fair few of these myself, when I was a kid in Tamworth.

Anyway, scroll through the posters and enjoy…

Okay, this is a double bill I saw at the cinema. I remember seeing this poster outside the theatre, advertising the upcoming screening!

  1. These combo posters are great (mostly British quad posters, right?). I have seen a few of these combos, but we in the States have rarely seen most of them because they originated from different studios here and the major studios are sticklers with their own product.
