Cinecon is the longest-running classic film festival in Los Angeles. Eschewing popularity in favor of obscurity, the organizers dig up films that are rarely presented on the big screen, most in 35mm, at the built-in-1922 Egyptian Theatre. Other must-sees at this five-day event are the memorabilia show, widely regarded as one of the country's best, and this year’s most prominent celebrity guest, Shirley Jones, who will sign copies of her controversial new autobiography.
