Airs Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Chattanooga, Tennessee, this collection of movie marketing memorabilia chronicles 60 years of cinematic history, including images of such iconic stars as Charlie Chaplain, James Dean, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. Passed down to the owner from her grandfather, who managed a movie theater in Cleveland, Tennessee, this colorful array of posters, lobby cards and arcade cards earns appraiser Gary Sohmer's estimate of $10,000 to $15,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
