Do you think these would be strong enough to hold a movie-size poster (one sheets)?

Yes. I currently have laminated posters that are 30" x 36" and they hold just fine.

I'm going to have to scale these down a little bit. The 1/4 OD tubing I got is just a little too small, it doesn't grip the poster at all. I also modified the part to have a tab at the top I can put a pushpin through, so I can mount it on the corkboard poster frames we have at the theater.

That's a good idea for a mod. I don't think you should have to scale it all, it took me a while to get it just the right size.

The posters I'm intending to hang with these aren't laminated or anything, not much thicker than a regular sheet of printer paper. Using a 1/2-inch piece of tubing, the poster didn't even contact the tubing inside the hanger. Using a piece of tubing that was just a little longer than the interior space of the hanger kinda worked, by bending the tubing, but then the tubing didn't roll up and down, which made it difficult to insert the poster. Narrowing the interior gap was the only thing left to try.
