Some theaters sell them.

Some movies require the promo stuff back and I would assume at that point - they sell them.

Others allow the employees first come first serve. My sister in law has a bunch of stuff back when she worked at them. But having a friend at a movie theater here is a great in if you need/want one. If not and there's something your interested in..ask one of the employees. A few bucks in their pocket can probably land you what you want if they can get it.

The old lobby cards were typically thrown out as they were made for a showing, some were kept by the old owners others given away, there are many replicas out there so be careful if buying them and looking for an original, now a days they just use posters and most are required to be returned with the movies. Hope that helps!

thanks man..

i have been checking/researching them alot lately,
unless its a beast card from a super popular film, or an exceptional rarity of a niche market (just saw a dull houdini sell on ebay for 4 grand) they are pretty darn cheap...also alot of them arent that attractive, so the
interesting/pretty ones really capture your eye..
