Mondo Cine was a 4-issue film-industry-related zine published by Roger Leatherwood from California, U.S.A., during the period of 1998 - 1999.

Four issues appeared, covering topics such as the off-market at Cannes, exploitation films, upcoming (at the time) digital sound technology in film theatres, the the changes in the ratings system from X to NC-17 and how it affected releases at Blockbuster video.

Leatherwood was a long-time movie theatre employee and also worked as a manager at Blockbuster Video during the ratings change, which affected such titles as "Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down" and "Henry and June."

Issues were typed and xeroxed on 8 1/2 by 14 and folded in half, with different colored cardstock for each issue (#1 pink, #2 blue, #3 yellow, #4 green) and sold for $2.00. Distribution was through the mail and after #2 through Tower Records. Approximately 75 copies of each issue were distributed, and after 4 issues the author deduced that he had made approximately $10 over the course of the entire run.

Leatherwood now writes a blog closely related in tone and content, called "Mondo Cine".
