“Fun place to watch movies in the summer”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

It's a beautiful and historic cemetery and definitely worth checking out. On the weekends during the summer, and also closer to Halloween, they show movies here. You bring a picnic dinner and a blanket and chill with friends, drink wine and enjoy a movie. It's like $10 to get in and $10 to park. Great date night.

“Day of The Dead Festival”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I attended the Day of The Dead Festival at this historic cemetery. Although we went for the festival the sigh seeing in the cemetery makes it an interesting place to visit. Many of Hollywoods greatest stars are laid to rest there including "Toto" the dog from the movie The Wizard of Oz. Huge headstones and other grave markers fill the entire property. One of the coolest markers is that of Johnny Ramone from the punk band The Ramones. Well worth a couple hours of your time.

“Where the movers and shakers finally rest”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Hollywood Forever is a really interesting and beautifully kept cemetery.
Get yourself organised before you go, as it is pretty big! So print off a map (It will cost you $5 at the flower shop) and a list of tombstones you want to see, as you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around.
There are literally dozens of famous people here, who helped shape Hollywood and make it into the town it is today. Take your camera.
The only thing I would say is that the owners/management are missing a trick by not selling a booklet giving you more information about some of the more famous residents. The map is fine, but a booklet would be better!

“Hollywood... Forever!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Look one way and you see Paramount Studios. Look the other and you can see the Hollywood sign! Many, many celebrity graves here in this old cemetery. Lots and lots of beautiful tombstones. Staff is helpful here. Just try to print out a listing of who you want to see and where they are prior to getting here. If you have trouble, the staff can help!
