Lights, Camera Action — Cinevent 2017

Apr 24, 2017 by

If you’re a fan of silent and early sound films or a collector of motion pictures and related items, then Cinevent 2017 is for you. One of the associated conventions – along with FarmerCon and Monster Bash – found on our home page, this year’s Cinevent runs from May 25 through May 28 in the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel on 50 North 3rd Street in the heart of Columbus, Ohio.

For nearly fifty years, Cinevent has gathered fans of silent and early sound films, as well as collectors of motion pictures and related items. The convention was co-founded by Steve Haynes — a big fan and supporter of PulpFest — who passed away in April of 2015.

In addition to over one-hundred tables of movie-related collectibles such as posters, lobby cards, press kits, DVDs and 16 mm films, Cinevent hosts one of the country’s largest live auctions of vintage posters. The convention also features an extensive schedule of classic sound and silent films. For a look at this year’s Cinevent film program, click here.

Although PulpFest 2017 will not have its own film program, the convention will still have a lot of great programming. Add to that a dealers’ room featuring tens of thousands of pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, digests, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, original art, first edition hardcovers, series books, reference books, dime novels and story papers, Big Little Books, B-Movies, serials and related paper collectibles, old-time radio shows, and Golden and Silver Age comic books, as well as newspaper adventure strips. So what are you waiting for? Start making your plans to join us at the “pop culture center of the universe” for PulpFest 2017. It will be held July 27 through July 30 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just north of Pennsylvania’s “Steel City” of Pittsburgh.

(George Waggner’s 1941 film MAN-MADE MONSTER, starring Lionel Atwill and Lon Chaney, Jr., will be one of the many films shown at this year’s Cinevent. The convention screens 16mm films nearly continually through the entire weekend.)
