The Hollywood Forever cemetery is an L.A. landmark in its own right. Built in 1899, it lands on the National Register of Historic Places thanks in large part to the stars who found their final resting place here, from Johnny Ramone to Rudolph Valentino. It's also the current site of Paramount Studios. But when Cinespia takes over each weekend, the cemetery attracts even larger crowds than usual.
Founded back in 2002, Cinespia reinvents the concept of movies in the park with its cemetery outdoor movies. The company screens classics on a jumbo screen at the cemetery, and invites locals to bring along blankets, low chairs, and any food and drink they like so they can enjoy the movie. Regular attendees of the event say you should show up as soon as the gates open (typically at 6 p.m.) to ensure you get the best spot. Patches of grass are a hot commodity on movie nights.
