Can posters be a good investment?

Buy it if you like it. As an investment it's probably useless.

Hmm not great I was lucky enough to be given a cinema poster for Titanic when it had won golden globes and before the oscars (only a very few of these) it is in pristine condition, but it is still 20 odd years later only worth 200 pounds. If I had had to pay money for it I would have done better elsewhere.
If you like the poster and are going to display it and enjoy it in your house then buy it. I do collect some art and never buy for investment always for the pleasure it will bring me.
My Dad has made some money on a piece of art, a picture deemed worthless 65 years ago that as a 5 year he choose as his thing to remember someone by. He has enjoyed it for 65years and is lucky that it is now very valuable.
