The 5 Best Movie Poster Frames

For movie fans, the poster of our favorite movie makes for a wonderful decoration on the wall of our home or office. It reminds us of the glorious experience of watching that movie.

You want a frame that looks great, is easy to install, and is built to last. Read on for our reviews of the 5 Best Movie Poster Frames.

Can the frame be hung landscape and portrait?

Yes. Most frames, including the all the ones we reviewed, can be hung both landscape and portrait. Just make sure you install the mounting hardware in the appropriate place for the orientation that you want to hang the frame in.

How do I put my poster in the frame?

Put the back of the poster against the backing and the front lens over the front of the poster. Then put all of that in the frame. Different frames are constructed differently, so you’ll want to check the instructions for your frame for exactly how it comes together.
