Cineconline Program Information

Revised September 2, 2020

Cinecon is highly regarded among film fans for screening the rare and unusual films of the silent and early sound era—films that seldom get seen on a big screen. Cinecon combs the major film archives and Hollywood studio vaults to select often forgotten gems that deserve a fresh look and reappraisal. At Cinecon there is something for everyone—comedy, drama, musicals, Westerns. We show the latest restorations—and some one-of-a-kind rarities.

Unfortunately this year due to the Covid-19 closures we are unable to bring you these great films in person so we have decided to produce an online version of Cinecon. But fear not we won't let this smaller venue stop us from bringing you the the quality of entertainment you've come to expect from Cinecon.

All films will be streamed live via the internet on our main page Thursday September 3rd through Saturday September 5th. Programs will begin each day at 3:00 PM PT / 6:00 PM ET and run about 4 1/2 hours. (times may vary). Visit the Cineconline Schedule page for showtimes.

Take a look at the great line-up of films that we have put together There will also be a few surprises along the way. Be sure to tune in so you don't miss a thing.

For our Saturday Nitrate Fever program we're having an encore of 2 shorts that we ran a few years ago. The nitrate prints of these two shorts had shrunk just past the point of being able to safely run through a projector so we made a digital transfer of them for preservation purposes. Program hosted by Jim Harwood.
