Apparently he was a big film buff and collected posters and film reels! Who knew! Anyway, no questioning its provenance, but the exact date may of course be a false memory.
Anyway he's clearing out and I got one, my son got one and my brother in law (her son) got one and the quads.
Any ideas on what it is?
It transpires (Thanks Matt Fox), that this is a likely to be a Super8 advertising poster...
"I believe your droids poster is a shop advertisement for the Super 8mm release.
I think you have the UK version, but you can see the US version here:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-77-SU%20...%201711145424
Measure the width of yours, it should be 14" across (It is indeed! - Thank you)
. I believe there may have been a strip along the bottom, it looks like from the Ebay link that this was part of the US poster, on the UK one the shape of yours would suggest that maybe the sales details were on a separate slip perhaps. - This must be the case both mine and my son's are exactly the same and look to be cut at printers, not post production.
Bit more digging to do, but this couldn't be more helpful, Thank you Matt, you've been a massive help
