Johnny Royal documents the new faces of the Masons, revealing the secrets and rituals of the world’s oldest and most powerful secret society.

Los Angeles, CA – October 6, 2017 –

Meet the new faces of the Masons.

It’s no coincidence that Johnny Royal’s feature length documentary, “33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” has its red carpet, worldwide premiere on the superstitious day of “Friday of the 13th“ at The Masonic Theater/Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in San Francisco.

Friday the 13th originates from the Knights Templar’s last Grand Master, Jacques DeMoley, who was arrested on Friday, October 13, 1307. When burned at the stake amongst other Templar Knights, DeMoley’s is noted for his last words: “”Pope Clement, Chevalier Guillaume de Nogaret, King Philip! I summon you to the Tribunal of Heaven before the year is out!”

Within the year, both Pope Clement and King Philip died.

Throughout history and revealed in Royal’s “33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY”, prominent Freemasons, including Jacque DeMolay, discuss and examine their association and ritualistic aspects often associated with the Knights Templar and their role in Freemasonry, the world’s oldest and most powerful secret society.

No coincidence… Right?

“33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” is noted as the first film to fully examine the entirety of the American Masonic structure. With striking cinematography and emotional interviews, Royal documents the new faces of today’s Freemasons, exposing their perspective and meaning of timeless rituals, their experiences and passionate purpose to continue the Freemason legacy.

Revealing answers to long-time questions – the purpose and meaning of the rituals, why people join, the unique culture of the Masonic fraternity, and where the future of the ancient society is headed – “33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” emphasizes Freemasons’ poignant narratives of their own “hero’s quest” and path to enlightenment, told through real behind the scenes interviews exposing the perspectives, experiences and emotional journey of Freemason across the country. 

Royal’s successful and intriguing feature length documentary will hit the big screen in major cities – all taking place inside Masonic lodges across the state. With an eclectic and remarkable cast and crew, including California Freemasons Producer Robert Doan, Producer, Music Supervisor, Composer, and Re-Recording Mixer Sean Beavan (Lost Highway, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson,) Supervising Editor Jason Pachomski (Bates Motel, Hand of God), and Composer and Co-Producer Tennessee Freemason Ernest Chapman. The team also includes Co-Producer and Composer Juliette Beavan, as well as Visual FX Supervisor Zach Brinkerhoff  (“Thor” and “X-Men First Class”), 33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” has invented an alternative, new way for theatrical releases, circumventing Hollywood and proving that a Hollywood studio isn’t needed in order to succeed.

After the red carpet premiere at The Grand Lodge of California in San Francisco, guests will get an exclusive Q&A with featured Brothers, as they answer questions, explore their Freemason practices and their experience working on this revelatory documentary.

“33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” will soon be featured in several cities, including: Nashville, TN, Los Angeles, CA, Phoenix, AZ, Guthrie, OK, Alexandria, LA, Charleston, SC, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, Chicago, IL and Detroit, MI.
