PRESENTED BY HOLLYWOOD HERITAGE
AUGUST 31 – SEPTEMBER 4 2023
HOLLYWOOD LEGION THEATRE
2035 HIGHLAND AVE – LOS ANGELES
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 more.
Cinecon is dedicated to showcasing unusual films that are rarely given public screenings. We work to bring together many of the films that literally defined the art of cinema. Our mission is to continue to celebrate this essential time in cinema when innovation, inventiveness, and inspiration were at the heart of the art form.
Everything you need to know about Cinecon 59 will be available on our Facebook page and on this website in the months to come.
Get ready for another excellent year of films and events. Cinecon 59!!

VOLUNTEER FOR CINECON
BE PART OF THE MAGIC
Have you ever said to yourself “Gee, those folks helping to put on Cinecon sure look like they’re having a lot of fun!” Well, of course not, because when you see us we usually have that shell-shocked look that comes from too many tasks and too few bodies to do the work!! You can help remedy this situation by becoming a Cinecon Volunteer.
Stella Grace is our dedicated volunteer coordinator, and she’d love to hear from you and put your talents towards the service of the Cinecon Classic Film Festival.
You can give Stella a call at (401) 400-1807 or e-mail her at email@example.com

Frequently Asked Questions
CAN I JUST COME SEE ONE MOVIE?
Sadly no. We would love to have people pick and choose from the schedule of movies, but we have found it works better for people to have at least a Day Pass.
DO YOU HAVE LODGING DEALS WITH LOCAL HOTELS
YES! You can check out information about our partner hotel in the EVENT INFO Section.
DO YOU SHOW MODERN MOVIES?
The focus of Cinecon centers on the films of the early times of cinema – namely films made between 1900 – 1940. Occasionally we will show films up to the 1950’s.
CAN I GET A REFUND IF I CANNOT MAKE IT?
The only refunds we do are for the Pre-Registration Full Festival Passes which are $249. These can be refunded up until Aug 15, 2022.
CAN I COME FOR JUST ONE DAY?
YES! We realize that taking 4 days to watch awesome movies might not be possible. That is why we created Day Passes for each of the four days. Check out the ticket section for more details.
CAN I PURCHASE PASSES AT THE FESTIVAL?
Yes you can! You can check in with staff on the day you go to the Festival.
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
Eventbrite accepts major forms of payment. We also can accept Paypal and Checks.
DO YOU HAVE COVID-19 PROTOCOLS IN PLACE?
We do. We will follow the protocols established by Los Angeles County at the time of the event. You can go to the EVENT INFO page for further details.
