We are pleased to announce that as of December 1st, Charmcine will be joining the Red Star family!

Over the last ten years Red Star has grown from a single small lighting rental house to four locations in Washington DC, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Madison, WI. With the addition of Charmcine, we’re excited to add three shops in Alexandria, Baltimore, and a second Philadelphia location.

Additionally, Videosmith will be moving in with Charmcine Philadelphia to form a new “Red Star Philadelphia South” location at 2239 Hartranft St, Philadelphia, PA 19145. Please see below for all new location contact information.

For those familiar with Charmcine, you can continue to expect the same great service & friendly staff, now backed by the equipment and resources of Red Star’s nationwide network, including lighting, grip, grip trucks, and production supplies. Red Star customers, get ready to welcome a vastly expanded catalog of top-tier camera, lens, and support gear.

Charmcine emails, website, and social media accounts will continue to operate as usual while we transition. Effective December 1st, Charmcine will operate under the Red Star name for all accounting and billing purposes. At that time, Charmcine emails will be converted to Red Star addresses.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility while we make this exciting transition!
