Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)

Original Film Art Shipping

  • This is an original, rolled, one-sheet movie poster from 1977 for Close Encounters of the Third Kind starring Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Francois Truffaut, Bob Balaban and Cary Guffey. Steven Spielberg directed the science-fiction film.

    The very rare, "UFO Facts" style poster features several UFO statistics from the 1970s and an address to request information from the Center for UFO Studies. The director of the Center for UFO Studies was Dr. J. Allen Hynek who served as a consultant on the film. Hynek coined the phrase Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    This advance poster was printed for use in theaters. It measures 27"x 41" and is in very good condition with very minor surface creasing from handling. There is some faint discoloration at the very top edge of the poster (not near the main image). Unlike most theatrical one-sheets from this period, it has never been folded.

    Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.

    This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1977 for the initial theatrical release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
