Cinema poster

Studio: Ken Taylor

Client: Alamo Draft House Cinema

The Alamo is a boutique cinema in Texas (US) that shows cult films. It has shown The Rocky Horror Picture Show every Saturday night for five years and has a band playing before and after. It commissioned me to do four posters (two initially – eight all up). They were to represent all of the key characters in the movie and were to be hand silk-screened in the States in editions of 100 each and sold at the cinema after the show for movie buffs and poster collectors. They were limited to four colours, which I had to take into account when creating the images. The metallic gold against the red has really helped them come to life!
