Mondo posters

Movie Poster storage ideas

Throughout the month of April, Film School Rejects will be dedicating the bulk of our Sunday programming to a series we call “Movie Geek Self Improvement.” We’ve tasked our writers with finding ways to improve your life — from losing weight to restoring old VHS tape jackets — we want to help you get the most out of your pop culture obsessed existence. Longtime readers of this site may note that we’ve got a thing for movie art. I won’t dare to speak for all of the Film School Rejects contributors, but I am personally a bit of a collector of prints. As I kid, my walls were decorated with theatrical reprints. Every trip to the comics shop left me with another summer blockbuster on my wall. Those were cheap and most of the time, never ended in a frame. Though as life goes, eventually I grew up. My first major piece of art as an adult was from Mondo back in 2007, a Tyler Stout “Remember the Alamo” print purchased from a guy at a small pop-up stand in the lobby of the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar theater. That was long before Mondo became the sensation it is today, before the gallery, before the frantic adventures in buying prints from their site that have become endemic of the nerd art collector experience. I’m an original Mondo hipster. It’s disgusting. Since that first purchase in 2007, I’ve been spending my hard earned dollars on screenprints from this outlet and that. […]



Tomorrow, during the Academy Awards ceremony and telecast, Mondo will be unveiling new posters for sale tied to the Oscar-nominated films (visit the shop here). It’s their second year doing a special series like this, and you may recall last year’s designs for Rango, Hugo and others. As you can see above, we’ve gotten a preview of their 2013 crop with artwork revealed for posters for The Master, Les Miserables and ParaNorman. You can see these in full after the jump along with a massive gallery featuring some older designs for current and past Oscar nominees.



Tomorrow will see the grand opening of Mondo’s new gallery space in Austin, Texas. Mondo, the art boutique offshoot of the Alamo Drafthouse, has been creating t-shirts, posters, and other movie-related items for several years now. In light of the new gallery opening, it seems as good a time as any to take a look back over their illustrious career. Many current poster hounds may not realize that the Mondo legacy goes back as far as it does, but old school fans will remember the phone booth-sized storefront Mondo enjoyed at the original Alamo Drafthouse on Colorado. No bigger than a postage stamp, the Mondo room was packed to the gills with t-shirts and posters. Mondo recently put up an online archive of all of their prints dating back to 1998, which frankly made this article much easier to put together. But it also serves as a window into their fantastic past, showcasing many prints you probably missed and will now furiously try to track down. Speaking of tracking down prints, here’s the top 13 on our radar.
