Cinecon 53 Classic Film Festival in Hollywood
RARE AND RESTORED FILMS RETURN TO THE BIG SCREEN AT HOLLYWOOD'S EGYPTIAN THEATER LABOR DAY WEEKEND: Actor Norman Lloyd will be Honored with the Cinecon Legacy Award!
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 the best movie memorabilia show in the nation. Cinecon is dedicated to showcasing unusual films that are rarely given public screenings.
This year's festival will take place in Hollywood from Aug. 31st through Sept. 4, 2017. Loews Hollywood Hotel is the host hotel with all screenings taking place at the historic Egyptian Theater just down the street on Hollywood Blvd.
The festival will open in grand style with a gala reception in the forecourt of the Egyptian Theatre followed by a David Shepard tribute screening of STEAMBOAT BILL, JR. (1928) starring Buster Keaton. Famous Players Orchestra will provide live musical accompaniment for the film. Legendary actor Norman Lloyd, a personal friend of Buster Keaton, will be honored with the Cinecon Legacy Award before the movie by actor Howie Mandel and producer Judd Apatow (schedule permitting).
Cinecon 53 will also feature special programs as well as a movie memorabilia show at Loews Hollywood Hotel located at 1755 North Highland Avenue in Hollywood. Attendees may purchase rare movie stills, posters, lobby cards and other film-related collectibles in our dealers rooms and have books signed at our author's tables.
Full Festival Passes are available at the pre-registration price of $175 until Midnight on August 15th. After that they will go up to $200. So it's best to purchase them early. We are also offering Day Passes from $40-$50 (depending on the day). All announced titles are subject to final film clearances.
