Cine Gear Expo Los Angeles

June 6-9, 2024

Warner Bros. Studios Backlot, Burbank, CA

Cine Gear Expo has announced that the June expo will be held at the historic Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. The Digital Cinema Society once again plans to hold our famous “Focus on Cine Lenses from the Buyer’s POV” event, where we gather virtually all the high end cine lens manufacturers in one place at one time so perspective buyers can see what’s available and compare their features. We also plan to conduct our annual interviews to dig deeper into the technology that is displayed at the expo.

Established over one hundred years ago, the iconic studio is the home of a century of cultural touchstones from classics like, The Jazz Singer, Casablanca, Looney Tunes, Rebel Without a Cause, and My Fair Lady, to current award-winners Barbie and Abbot Elementary. Today the 110-acre main lot encompasses 29 sound stages and 11 exterior sets and offers a range of production rentals and services. This year’s Expo will again feature technology previews, film screenings, educational panels, guild and association presentations, and filmmaker talks. Cine Gear Registration is Open NOW and Free (before May 28, 2024, 11:59pm PDT) at
