Cinecon 54 General Information About This Year's Show
(posted August 30, 2018)
The memorabilia show and registration desk will be located on the mezzanine level (2nd floor) of the Loews Hollywood Hotel and they will open at 12 noon on Thursday, August 30th
If you pre-registered, you can pick up your registration packet and name badge from the registration desk at the hotel.
The opening night gala that's being held in the forecourt of the Egyptian Theater will begin at 5pm. The entry to the forecourt will be closed until 5pm, so don't be early. Only full festival pass holders and Thursday day pass holders will be admitted to the gala.
There will be no admittance to the Egyptian Theater until after the opening night gala. There will be access to the bathrooms at the theater, but the auditorium will be closed to the public until after the gala is finished.
The larger parking lot that was directly behind the Egyptian Theater is gone, there is a new building on the property. There is a large lot on Las Palmas Blvd. just across the street from the old one. Parking enforcement has really stepped up in the area, so be very cautious using metered parking. They're quick to write parking tickets on expired meters!
You must wear your Cinecon badge at all times while you are at the show.
Once again your Cinecon badge will get you discounts at some local restaurants. Check for the restaurant list in the Cinecon 54 program or ask for information at the registration desk.
