In what has to be the worst kept secret of the year, Mondo’s Mystery Movie XI celebrated the holidays with perhaps the best Christmas film ever made, Die Hard. Handling poster duties, Laurent Durieux turned out a stunning piece for the film, availble in two different color schemes, a metal variant and even an ultra-rare glass variant. The entrance to the theatre was decked out with (fake) broken glass all over the floor and a sign that asked people to please take off their shoes. As usual, Mondo pulled out all the stops to make the event memorable. In addition, they also showed a special sneak for Durieux’s upcoming gallery solo show at the Austin Gallery, and of course, I’ll keep you updated when more info becomes available!

Here’s Durieux’s piece for the event, straight from Durieux’s Facebook. Please note that this is a text variant, created for an upcoming Alamo Drafthouse screening.
