Could not recommend more highly!

Great rental, convenient pick up

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!

Great equipment & communication! Would rent again!

Tommy and his gear always come through. He's very prompt to respond to messages and super easy to coordinate with. The gear is in excellent condition, and he's always friendly. Will definitely use and recommend for future shoots.

Spartan Cinema was great to rent from! Definitely planning on renting from them again!

Super accommodating and easy to work with. Great communication, quick responses and even quicker turnaround!

Always a great experience renting from Spartan Cinema! I'll definitely rent from him again in the future!

Great experience renting from Spartan Cinema. Very responsive to texts and easy to coordinate with. Also, friendly and flexible. I will definitely try to rent from them in the future.

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!

Tom was amazing! He was reliable and the pickups and drop offs were very smooth. Would definitely rent from Spartan Cinema again.

Spartan Cinema were great to work with and the equipment was of the best quality. Thank you for being amazing!

This piece of equipment worked excellent and was a must have on set. Spartan did a great job making it available!

It was a great experience renting from Spartan. The gear was in excellent condition and worked like a charm. Communication was on point and pick-up and drop-off was easy. Great service!!

Very simple rental with a wonderful guy - everything was smooth and in working order. Tommy, thanks for being so easy to work with! Would definitely rent again.
