During Cinecon 52, author John Bengtson lead a locations tour of the Hollywood area near the Egyptian Theater.  The highlight was the East Cahuenga Alley where Charles Chaplin filmed a sequence for "The Kid" (1921).  In a Then & Now moment, the tour posed in the same place as Chaplin did during production of his feature film.

Cinecon 51 was a big success.  Now the work begins for Cinecon 52.
