Silent Film Detective John Bengtson at the Egyptian for Cinecon August 30


Famed silent film detective John Bengtson will be at the Egyptian for a talk during the Labor Day weekend Cinecon classic film festival.  His "Silent Film Echoes" presentation will be at the Egyptian on Friday, August 30 at 10:30 am followed by a walk to the 1600 block of Cahuenga, filming site for many silent films.


See John's Silent Era Hollywood Tour post for more information. The full schedule of screenings and talks is on the Cinecon website.  It runs Thursday, July 29 through Monday, September 2. As the organization's website says:

"For nearly 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."
 
There's also a Cinecon Facebook page. All film screenings will be at the Egyptian Theatre. See our Egyptian web pages for lots of photos and data about the theatre.
