Let’s face it, we won’t be throwing out our face masks just yet. Although more people are getting vaccinated, masks are still an essential part of our everyday-lives. Most businesses (including movie theaters) won’t even allow customers inside without wearing some kind of facial covering, so it’s probably best to stock up on as many face masks as possible. And if you want to get creative, there are a lot of different designs to choose from, including a bunch of eye-catching face coverings dedicated to your inner film buff.

Because we wanted to make the search easier for movie lovers, we rounded up a list of face masks that celebrate classic films, movie themes, and more. See our picks below and for more film-themed gifts check out best gifts for movie lovers, and best graduation gifts for student filmmakers.
