Cinecon 54 will begin on Thursday night August 30 with our opening night gala in the Egyptian Theater forecourt followed by the screening of a new restoration of the 1924 silent film HELEN'S BABIES starring Baby Peggy, Clara Bow and Edward Everett Horton featuring live musical accompaniment by the Famous Players Orchestra. And that's just the start of a weekend jam packed with films and fun. See what's happening at Cinecon 54:
Cinecon 54 has ended and we're sorry that you missed it. We enjoyed some terrific films, gave out some special awards, got some great deals at the memorabilia show and generally had a wonderful time. We need a little time to rest and recoup from this show but we are already thinking about film titles for Cinecon 55 which will take place next Labor Day weekend, Thursday, August 29 - Monday, September 2, 2019.
For more than half a century Cinephiles have gathered over Labor Day Weekend to celebrate the movies at the annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Cinecon is where archivists, authors, collectors and film fans come together for five days of classic film screenings, special programs, celebrity guests, and the best movie memorabilia show in the nation. Cinecon is dedicated to showcasing unusual films that are rarely given public screenings.
Loews Hollywood Hotel will be the host hotel with all screenings taking place at the historic Egyptian Theater just down the street on Hollywood Blvd. Loews offers special room rates to Cinecon attendees, click here for more information.
Everything you need to know about Cinecon 54 will be available on this website in the months to come, including news about films to be screened, hotel and dealer information, and registration details.
We hope you’ll join us at CINECON 54 this Labor Day weekend.
