We design our listings with great care and have spent a lot of effort to create packages that are intuitively put together and allow for customization for specific needs. Please read the listings prior to booking and if you are unsure if the equipment is suitable, please contact us for friendly advice or forward our listing to a member of your camera department. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ We request that pick-ups and drop-offs be made at our location in Beverly Grove.

Spartan Cinema is just what they advertised, good equipment, good people and excellent service. I'll be going back here for my other production equipment needs. I was really impressed. They are high on my recommendation list.

Gear was well organized and in great condition. Tommy is easy, responsive, and an overall good guy. Will be renting from Spartan again!

Tommy at Spartan Cinema is the best type of business owner to encounter. He is honest and accommodating. You can tell he takes pride in his work and has a genuine care for clients satisfaction. Could not have had a better experience. Will certainly seek Spartan Cinema out on future shoots. Thanks again, Tommy.

Talk soon.


Great equipment & communication! Would rent again!

We love working with Spartan Cinema!

Fantastic renter! The equipment was perfect and he made it very easy and convenient, and he was able to accommodate my rental request on a short notice. I'll definitely rent from him again!

Once again, excellent service! We've enjoyed working with Spartan Cinema.

Renting with Tommy has been a joy, and our cam op loved this monitor set. Thank you!

spartan is so kind and accommodating! A lifesaver

So glad to have discovered Kitsplit and Spartan Cinema. Doubt I could have coordinated (or funded) this last shoot without the support from Daniel at KS and Tommy at Spartan. Terrific support, communication, and most importantly, gear. Got everything I needed with one stop shopping. Tommy is a true "film dude" who knows what you need, what you have to do, and how to help you do it. Like I told him, I felt like I was working with a collaborator, not a vendor. If you are in LA, definitely look these guys up. But give yourself a little extra time at pick up and drop off so you can talk a little film with Tommy. Come on…it can't be all work!

Spartan Cinema was amazing to work with. Super clear communication throughout the entire process and coordination for pickup and drop off was seamless. The gear was handled with the utmost care and returned just as it left. I would be happy to work with Spartan Cinema again in the future!

On point! And nice rentals

Worked perfectly! Always great gear.

The gear was in great condition and worked perfectly. Tommy was a joy to chat with and super helpful with the rental. I'd rent from him again in heartbeat.

Great working with Tommy! Will rent from again as he was able to deliver and pickup with short notice. Lifesaver!!

Worked out well for us!
