The following text is from an article from Star Wars Galaxy Collector #4 by Chris Gove:
The rarest and most valuable of all the Star Wars movie posters is the so-called 1985 Triple Bill. It was produced to promote an exclusive one-time showing of the entire Star Wars trilogy in nine theaters across the U.S. in March '85 to benefit the Corporation of Public Broadcasting. Each theater received only two posters, which featured the three films' logos, as well as the theater's name and address and ticket sales information. In fact, they weren't really posters; they're actually large blow-ups of black and white photographs. There's also a Canadian version of the Triple Bill, slightly larger than the U.S. one, and instead of "For the first time in America," it has the words "Special Showing, One Performance Only." Proceeds from the Canadian showing went to the Canadian Children's Foundation.
It's complicated to place a value on an item of such rarity, because there are so few sales to base it on. The last known sale of the Canadian version was in 1997, for $6,500. The most recentsale of a U.S. Triple Bill, in 1995, was for the same price. It's safe to assume that the prices for either would be higher now - if you were lucky enough to find one for sale, that is.
