Well I can't seem to find this poster either but the Empire lettering looks a lot like the Empire magazine logo, could it possibly have been a free giveaway with the mag (or maybe Empire magazine just ripped it off as they do really like Star Wars)?

I'm sure someone on here knows so it'll be interesting to find out what it is.

I'm sure the poster experts will help out

Maybe the " Empire 1977" alludes to the cinema the poster was on show at. As you say it will be interesting to find out what this is

It's a modern print, as Ian has said, the EMPIRE logo is from the magazine, probably from one of their Star Wars special editions as a freebie or similar.

Not worth anything I'm afraid.

I thought as much although I couldn't seem o find it in any of my searches (not that it means that it can't be found easily). The thing that surprises me slightly was that it was said to come from an auction, was it not sold with any information George? I also hope you didn't pay a lot for it as it sounds not to be worth that much.

ah thats a shame, how modern do you think? as to me it looks quite old perhaps before 2000. And it was just at a local auction i go to, it was only £5 and i thought it might hold some value so went for it. you win some you lose some! but... its from a special edition empire magazine (so also limited edition) and is also pretty rare, at least it sounds valuable!

At a guess it probably came with the magazine around 1997 when the special editions came out.

This poster was indeed a free giveaway with an issue of Empire Magazine, I had a copy myself from years back. Sadly no value to it.
