Alamo Drafthouse Auctioning Off Rare Mondo Prints

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is inviting guests to bid on the largest and most comprehensive auction of Mondo prints ever. Drawn entirely from Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League’s personal collection of nearly 2,000 Mondo limited edition prints, the auction begins Sunday, November 29th in partnership with eMoviePoster.com. Bidding for each item begins at just $1.

“I love Mondo posters. I own quite a few of them and the interpretations of my films by the Mondo crew are a source of great pride to me,” says Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright. “It is clear they are in the middle of a very cool Venn diagram composed of huge artistic talent and a genuine love of movies.”

The auction will begin at 5:00PM on November 29th and close on December 13th. Bidders must have a free account at eMovieposter.com to bid. Everything in the auction is certified original and in mint or near mint condition. Each poster will be meticulously inspected and graded prior to the auction by the eMovieposter team.

From Tim League: “Cinemas across the country are facing extraordinary financial hardships. We are legally unable to open many of our venues, and where we can open, our capacity is significantly reduced, the product – the supply of blockbuster films – has evaporated, and our debt from accrued rent during closure continues to mount.

100% of proceeds from the sale will go towards paying staff of the Alamo Drafthouse and paying debt and expenses accrued during the COVID closures. These next four to six months are critical and the proceeds from this auction will help immensely.

If you are a Mondo collector, if you have a movie fan in your life who would like something unique under the Christmas tree this year, or if you have never purchased a poster before, we invite everyone to explore the incredible history of nearly 15 years of beautiful poster design in this auction.

Alamo Drafthouse’s history of creating special hand-silkscreened event posters dates back to early partnerships with then gig poster luminary and Mondo co-founder Rob Jones on posters for QT Fest and early outdoor Rolling Roadshow events like Cinemapocalypse. Later, Mondo Tees – the tiny iron-on T-shirt shop in the original Alamo Drafthouse’s ticket booth – began creating and releasing collectible prints that became highly sought-after, and revolutionized the film poster world.

Mondo’s reputation for graphic excellence continues with inventive, artist-driven designs for everything from the latest studio blockbusters to cult classics. That commitment to has led the company to work with a roster of world-renowned artists that include Aaron Horkey, Becky Cloonan, Francesco Francavilla, Frank Kozik, Jermaine Rogers, Jason Edmiston, Jay Ryan, Jay Shaw, Jock, Tula Lotay, Laurent Durieux, Matt Taylor, Olly Moss, Stan Sakai, Shepard Fairey, Drew Struzan, Vania Zouravliov, and many more.

Mondo To Release Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Print On September 10

It’s been ten years since writer/director Edgar Wright KO’ed us with his live-action adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. 

Truly though, what Edgar was able to do with Bryan Lee O’Malley’s series of graphic novels is nothing short of a pop culture tour de force. From its completely stacked cast, Edgar’s and Michael Bacall’s brilliant script, Bill Pope’s kinetic cinematography… it all comes together in a film that can now be considered a timeless genre classic. 

Mondo is excited to have a new poster for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World by Matt Ryan Tobin! Matty’s poster celebrates both the girl of Scott’s dreams, Ramona Flowers in her infinite radness, as well another pretty iconic staple of pop culture with the initials “S.P.” This poster is available in three color variants, just like Ramona’s ever-changing hair. She dyes it every week and a half, dudes. Get used to it. 

Matt Ryan Tobin’s Scott Pilgrim VS. The World print will be available for purchase tomorrow September 10 at 11AM (CT) HERE.

Mondo To Release Fantastic Four #1 Screenprinted Poster

The history of Marvel Comics technically begins with the introduction of Namor the Sub-Mariner in 1939 and Captain America the following year. But the rise of the company from a scrappy publisher of romance, war, and sci-fi comics to one of the biggest entertainment brands ever really began in 1961 with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four, and the revitalization of the entire comics industry that followed.

This week Mondo will release a new poster featuring the Fantastic Four – a beautiful, screenprinted reproduction of Fantastic Four #1 by legendary artist, Jack “King” Kirby.

It’s 1961. Marvel Comics editor Stan Lee and Jack Kirby collaborate to create the company’s first new superheroes in years, a team book to compete with the distinguished competition’s Justice League of America. Rather than a group of heroes uniting to fight against evil, it would begin with a family – the world’s smartest man, his scrappy best friend, the love of his life, and her hotshot brother. Each transformed by a terrible accident, they’d stay united in their adventures (and angst) for the decades to come, and transform an entire medium along the way. 

It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that Fantastic Four #1 is one of the most important publications ever, and we’re honored to bring you a reproduction of artist Jack Kirby’s original cover art.

It’ll be clobberin’ time on June 25th at 11AM, when the poster will be available HERE.

Peter yet again delivers an awesome illustration of the ensuing battle between the three monsters.
