I bought a piece of the Suncoast Movie Store sign

The Suncoast movie store at my mall went out of business a few months ago. There were selling everything, even the fixtures. On the outside, the store sign has a 'movie reel' with different movies in each 'frame' of film. I was interested in the Star Wars one, and the manager and I made a deal for me to purchase it. The only condition was that I had to remove it myself on the last business day and I could not sue them if I injured myself taking it down (I had to sign a waiver).

Since it was on the outside of the Suncoast Movie store, I assume it is a licenced piece.

I figured it was just a glorified poster on a thin plastic sheet or something, as the sign was backlit, but I was surprised. The Star Wars panel was part of a 3 panel section on white 1/4 inch plexiglass that also came with Indiana Jones and Gone with the Wind. So, I had to take all 3 even though I only wanted/bought the SW one.

I was going to cut the Vader section off with the old table saw and frame it with a backlight to display. I promised the Rhett and Scarlett to my wife's sister Tara (named for the plantation from the movie, collects Gone with the Wind stuff), but I don't know what to do with Indy.

I asked actress and model Lindsay Lohan to pose with it to give you a sense of the size. She is 12 inches tall.

The images are basically big stickers on the 1/4 inch plexiglass.

Suggestions?

With some rigging you could probably make a nice backlit sign perhaps?

I myself purchased one of the 3' foamcore pieces from a local Suncoast--still haven't found a wall to mount it on.

I think I actually saw you taking the sign down that day (I live in Plano) and was wondering if they were selling the rest.

Wish I had spoken up before they kicked the bucket.
