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!!

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, 2023.

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 WELLNESS PROTOCOLS IN PLACE?

We do. While Covid-19 remains an issue, protocols have been relaxed for inside venues. We do encourage wearing a mask if you are concerned, but it is not mandatory. You can go to the EVENT INFO page for further details.
