Values updated: APRIL 2019 - NABSHOW Weekend Rentals: Please make an extra effort to be on time to your appointment if you are requesting to receive or return equipment on a Saturday or Sunday. Founded in 2017, Spartan Cinema’s goal is to produce personal film content, and provide other filmmakers with the tools to create their own. Our rental philosophy hinges on being informed. The more one knows, the more one can prepare to tackle the inevitable obstacles of filmmaking. Browsing Sharegrid will show you that online rentals come in all shapes and sizes. 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. _____ As rental prices are kept at competitive rates, we request that pick-ups and drop-offs be made at our location in Beverly Grove. Please return equipment before noon on the return day. Manage your time wisely so you can return equipment on time. Rentals are by APPOINTMENT ONLY, so please coordinate with us on the time that you would like to pick up and drop off equipment. Please make an effort to not be late. Let us know when you are heading our way and send your Waze or Google Map estimate. Please do not show up unannounced. EQUIPMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR PICK-UP AFTER 1:00PM, unless you have coordinated an early pick-up with us in advance. EQUIPMENT IS DUE BACK BY 12:00PM (NOON) on your return day. Late returns are subject to a late fee. Parking: Our location is currently out of a private apartment building on a street that has permit restrictions on one side. Please avoid parking illegally or in our neighbor’s driveways. We understand it’s not an ideal set-up, but we will walk the equipment to your vehicle if you need to park down the street or around the corner, just let us know. We want to be respectful of our neighbors as we find a location more suitable to our customers and the online rental experience. Please be punctual. If you are running late, send us a text message or call to let us know. Being late affects our ability to schedule and support other renters and projects. Pick-up and drop off days are not shooting days. We will consider morning pick-ups for equipment on special request only. Be prepared to tell us why you need the equipment early. Equipment pick-ups are after 1:00PM. Thank you for your understanding.

Great equipment and price and communication! Def renting again!

Spartan for the win <3

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!
