Ah, update on these. My mom said that they couldn`t afford to print out movie posters so they just painted their own... Kind of sad, really.

I like them, but I`ve only seen one of the movies listed(the birds). They make me want to watch them thought.

Wow those are awesome! I`m polish too, but I haven`t seen any of them. I think GZas is right though.

Anyways, I really want Dumbo, The Birds, and Raiders of the Lost Ark... Too bad Dumbo alone costs $360 O_o

I am Polish, and i`ve never seen almost any of this posters... They were made before year 1989. Poland was a communist country then... the differences in cultures between Poland and USA was huge, so i think this posters were made for the Poland of the time... Nowadays the Polish culture is mixing with the west, so we`re not making our own posters
