Evil Dead Again…
What’s new is still dead. (IMP)
You know your movie poster business is doing well when it’s featured in The Wall Street Journal — as The Alamo Drafthouse / Mondo Gallery mafia continues its hot streak.
Black Widow Lake?
No doubt the new limited-edition Black Widow posters by indie UK artist, Olly Moss, (courtesy of Alamo Drafthouse) are all sold out by now…but perhaps Veronica Lake is still available?
Munn Meets MoMA
Indie rock/film poster artist, Jason Munn (Alamo Drafthouse, etc.) just went legit as SFMoMA recruited him be part of the museum’s Artist Series.
With that designation under his belt, he designed an eye-popping quartet of Saul Bass-ish graphics that are now on sale at Munn’s website or the SFMoMA museum store!
Do It David O’Daniel Style!
Much like his predecessors — and contemporaries — Peter Strausfeld, Olly Moss, and Jason Munn who all supplied their original movie poster visions to the UK’s Academy Cinema and Alamo Drafthouse, respectively — now comes along David O’Daniel and his wonderful limited edition silkscreens for The Castro Theatre in San Francisco.

Mondo + Movie Posters = $$$$
Movie poster trends come and go, but there is no doubt that the hottest new kid on the block is Mondo, the mates behind the Alamo Drafthouse, who have rejuvenated the morbid market with their revamped one-sheets designs for The Rolling Roadshow Tour from such graphic design prodigys as Olly Moss and Jason Munn.

Remember The Alamo…No texting, please!
Last Friday, Alamo Drafthouse touted the return of The Rolling Roadshow Tour…well, during one of those screenings, they also discovered a new way of dealing with rude, too-texty customers!
