Tuesday was the 20th anniversary of Reservoir Dogs, the directorial debut of one Quentin Tarantino. The film wasn’t exactly a huge commercial success but what it did was kickstart the career of one of the most talented and revered men in cinema today. To celebrate, the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, CA held a special 20th anniversary, 35 mm screening of the film and, surprise surprise, the gang from Mondo showed up after the credits rolled with a little surprise.
Screenprint legend Tyler Stout is back with his third Tarantino print: Reservoir Dogs. It’s a 36 x 24 inch, horizontal beauty that will be on sale in the coming weeks. Official photos have yet to be revealed (there’s also a variant) but as I was at the screening, I figured you might like to check it out. Read More »

For some music lovers, vinyl LPs never stopped being an ideal way to listen to music. Stick to CDs or MP3s if you like, but I’ll continue to nurture my own enthusiasm for the large cover art and physical interaction with LPs. Last year, I reluctantly bought a digital copy of the score for Nicolas Winding Refn‘s movie Drive, but would have much rather been able to purchase an LP pressing with the moody cues from Cliff Martinez.
Last week the UK label run by Geoff Barrow of Portishead announced that it would release the Drive OST on vinyl, and now Mondo has chimed in with plans to release a 2-LP edition of the Drive OST in the US. No need to pay the import price!
Oh, and as a bonus, the Mondo release will have new cover art by Tyler Stout. Details are below, along with a nifty trio of neon-inspired posters (unrelated to the LP release) for the film. Read More »

There’s something incredibly exciting about the phrase “anything is possible.” Waiting for something that could be anything is an exercise for your imagination. That infinite possibility, coupled with wild speculation and prediction, is ninety percent of the fun of Mondo’s Mystery Movies.
Mondo, as you may know, is the ever-growing poster boutique associated with the Alamo Drafthouse. In April Mondo began a project called Mystery Movies. People buy a ticket for a movie that won’t be announced until they’re in the theater. That is coupled with a limited edition poster that will only ever be available at the event. So imagine buying a ticket to one of these things and speculating what it could be. You throw out suggestions with your fellow attendees, laughing at wild ones and nodding at more likely ones. Finally, you sit down for the film and all is revealed. Does it live up to your expectations?
After two events in their hometown of Austin, Texas, the Mondo Mystery Movie hit the road for the first time ever featuring six different mystery movies over one weekend at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles. What were the films? What did the posters look like? What was the experience like? And did the event live up to our wildest expectations? Find out after the jump. Read More »
