“33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” is an enticing and beautifully captured cinematic journey which follows the shared Masonic experience of the world’s oldest fraternity, highlights the worldwide legacy of Freemasons, and is noted as the first film to fully explain in depth the entire American Masonic structure, including the Blue Lodge (degrees 1 – 3), the Scottish Rite (degrees 4-33), and the York Rite (Royal Arch, Cryptic Masons, Knights Templar).
The film kicked off its limited U.S. theatrical tour in October 2017 with its red carpet world premiere at the Masonic Theater Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in San Francisco with ABC Fox anchor, David Winters’ special piece on the origins of the Masons and connection to Friday the 13th, which was the date of the San Francisco world premiere on the 300th anniversary of the Grand Lodge in London, England.

Winters described the film as a feature length documentary that lifts “the veil on what is a centuries-old secret society called the Free Masons,” adding, “’33 & Beyond: The Royal Art of Freemasonry’ is perhaps the most important and fascinating movie ever made on the subject matter of Freemasonry.”
Soon after, the featured California Freemasons found themselves traveling from Beverly Hills to Phoenix and Tucson, AZ to Oklahoma City for red carpet and exclusive screenings that had overflowing crowds in each theater. Audiences gathered to finally get insight from Director Royal and his team on the overall purpose and significance of Masonic rituals, the unique culture and the future of the fraternity through behind-the-scene interviews from today’s most prominent Freemasons, reaching a global audience with over 90 screening requests across the U.S.

Portraying their dedication to the Masonic culture and community with the seven-years-in-the-making documentary, the beautiful representation of Freemasonry in the film has inspired and connected Masonic and non-Masonic communities, providing teaching tools for non-Masons / brand new Masons, as many are intrigued by the deep Masonic root within several noteworthy U.S. Presidents, including George Washington, who was elected Worshipful Master on December 20, 1788 in Virginia’s Fredericksburg Lodge No. 4.

“To me, the ceremonies of Freemasonry in this state of ours, especially these later ones that I have taken part in, always make me wish that more Americans, in every part of our land, could become connected with our fraternity.” – President Franklin Roosevelt, Holland Lodge No. 8 (New York City)
Mason or not, there is no denying the historical and cultural significance of the Masonic Brotherhood as “33 & BEYOND: THE ROYAL ART OF FREEMASONRY” holds a current rank of 9.5 out of 10 stars on IMDB and continues to sell-out theaters across the U.S.

President Harry S. Truman is known for his participation in Missouri Masonic lodges (Belton Lodge No. 450 +& Grandview Lodge No. 618) as he is quoted for stating, “The greatest honor that has ever come to me, and that can ever come to me in my life, is to be Grand Master of Masons in Missouri.” In Harry S. Truman: His Life and Times by Brian Burnes, Truman is credited with the essence of the Masonic Brotherhood – “Freemasonry is a system of morals which makes it easier to live with your fellow man, whether he understands it or not.”
