That's a non-standard size (a 'traditional' vintage one sheet is 27x41") so you'll likely need a custom frame. I can highly recommend Hollywood Poster Frames (https://www.hollywoodposterframes.com/). They'll get you a frame for a fraction of what you'd pay at a chain frame store and are good poster people to boot.

I can't find it now, but I bought a really nice poster frame from Amazon. The four sides open and close and it does a very nice job on both 27x40 and 27x41. Perfect frame for those who change out the posters frequently.

Wish I could find it to leave a link.

Thanks I'll give them a try! I's unfortunate to pay more for the frame than i did for the poster!

I would look at the big box discount or hobby stores---you can usually find a decent one-sheet frame for around $20.

One sheets are usually 27 x 41 so bring a tape measure with you to make sure the frame is exactly the right size.

Over the years I've gotten really high end frames at yard sales, but they are strange sizes like 27" x 39 1/2" resulting in having to fold the very top of the poster to frame it---something you DON'T want to do with a valuable poster, since as posters age, they can become brittle and crack and crumble if folded.
