Founded in 2017, Spartan Cinema’s goal is to produce personal film content, and provide other filmmakers with the tools to create their own.
As rental prices are kept at competitive rates, we request that pick-ups and drop-offs be made at our apartment location in Beverly Grove. Please return equipment before noon on the return day. Manage your time wisely so you can return equipment on time. We can also receive gear the night of your shoot day (the evening before your return day) or very early in the morning on your return day if it is easier for you. We appreciate those with good communication skills!
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.
Please do not notify us you are running an hour late after you have already missed your arrival time.
Damage & Theft Insurance required on all rentals, no exceptions.
Delivery: Our delivery rates are not budget rates. Equipment prices are very competitive, but we deliver in a large SUV so please adjust your expectations accordingly. Stay tuned for better delivery options in the near future.
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 understanding. Let's make some movies!
Tommy is a super nice guy who ran me through the equipment beforehand (which I appreciated being a producer and therefore less knowledgeable about the technical side of stuff.) Pickup and drop-off were absolute simplicity, no issues through any of the process, and Tommy was super responsive to all my communication. Rent things from him. He is awesome.
