OUR VENUE FOR CINECON 60

Cinecon Classic Film Festival is thrilled to be celebrating its 60th anniversary at the Writer’s Guild Theater which originally opened on July 9, 1970, as The Doheny Plaza Theater and was remodeled in the mid-1990s. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills at 135 South Doheny Drive, the WGA Theater is the perfect venue for red carpet premieres, awards presentations, press, cast and crew screenings, receptions, and film festivals (such as ours). The 473-seat theater is minutes away from world-class dining, features a plush interior, and is outfitted with top-of-the-line film, sound, and digital projection systems, including the latest in 3D technology. 

The spacious but intimate lobby and reception area offer more than 2,000 square feet of flexible space with a fully equipped wet bar, cocktail furniture, and lounge chairs, and a sleek VIP green room. Over six levels of convenient and secure parking with multiple entrances are just off Wilshire Boulevard. We think you’ll love it as much as we do!

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.

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 around the golden age of Cinema – namely films made between the 1910s to the 1950s. Occasionally we will show films made up through the 1960s. 

CAN I GET A REFUND IF I CANNOT MAKE IT?

We only offer refunds for the $299 Early Bird Full Festival Passes. These can be refunded until August 15, 2024.

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.
