Hollywood Forever is a cemetery unlike any other in the world. One of the world’s most fascinating landmarks, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place to more of Hollywood’s founders and stars than anywhere else on earth.
Founded in 1899, the cemetery was an integral part of the growth of early Hollywood. Paramount Studios was built on the back half of the original Hollywood Cemetery, where the studio is still in operation today. The cemetery of choice for most of the founders of Hollywood’s great studios, as well as writers, directors, and, performers, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Visitors come from all over the world to pay respects Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and hundreds more of Hollywood’s greatest stars.
In the summer time, locals gather for various cultural events hosted by Hollywood Forever. Visit their website to find more information about their upcoming performances, typically held at the Masonic Lodge, or the locals’ favorite – movie nights. Enjoy a romantic evening with your loved ones on the beautiful lawn in the center of the cemetery and don’t forget to bring a pillow, blanket and plenty of wine and cheese to make your night memorable.
