Beyond Fest
Beyond Fest is the highest attended genre film festival in the U.S. and exists to build the genre community in Los Angeles. Based out of Hollywood’s legendary Egyptian Theatre, Beyond Fest is built in partnership with the American Cinematheque, Meltdown Comics, Death Waltz Recording Co. and the Alamo Drafthouse’s, Fantastic Fest. A not-for-profit entity, Beyond Fest raises funds for the 501C3 non-profit film institution, American Cinematheque. Its favorite film is JAWS.

American Cinematheque
Established in 1981, the American Cinematheque is a 501C3 non-profit viewer-supported film exhibition and cultural organization dedicated to the celebration of the Moving Picture in all of its forms. The American Cinematheque renovated and reopened (on Dec. 4, 1998) the historic 1922 Hollywood Egyptian Theatre. This includes a state-of-the-art 616-seat theatre housed within Sid Grauman’s first grand movie palace on Hollywood Boulevard. The exotic courtyard is fully restored to its 1922 grandeur. The Egyptian was the home of the very first Hollywood movie premiere in 1922. In January 2005 the American Cinematheque expanded its programming to the 1940 Aero Theatre on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.

Death Waltz Recording Co.
FOUNDED in 2011 by music industry veteran Spencer Hickman, Death Waltz Recording Co. have been at the forefront of the vinyl soundtrack resurgence. Working with directors and composers such as David Lynch, Richard Kelly, John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi, and Steve Moore to produce definitive versions of classic soundtracks to films both old and new. Recently venturing into both digital and CD territory DWRC remain the leading lights of the soundtrack scene . In 2015 DWRC joined Mondo Tees and Hickman now runs both The Mondo Music Label and DWRC.

Meltdown Comics
Located in the heart of Hollywood on Sunset Blvd, Meltdown opened in 1993 and has since become one the most respected comic book stores in the world. Taking a sophisticated approach to merchandise and operations, the 14,000 sq ft giant has garnered a reputation for hosting successful gallery openings, award winning comedy including the Comedy Central’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, live shows and  podcasting events in their collaborative space with Nerdist and the NerdMelt Showroom.

Not content with LA Weekly naming us one of the “Top 50 things why LA kicks ass,” Hef’s Playboy Magazine named us a “top 10 store you must visit before you die.” Oh, and “Husbands and Knives,” the 7th episode of The Simpsons’ 19th season… The lead segment is based on us. (Google it.) ‘Nuff Said!
