Owner description: Final resting-place of some of Hollywood's celebrities and other luminaries.
Reviewed December 2, 2013

It's a nice place to walk around with a very beautiful pond, was cool to see the tombs of some of Hollywood's Legends (Cecil B Demill, Tyrone Power amoung others).
Not exactly a must-see but if you have the time its worth a quick visit

Being a huge fan I had to to come and see Johnny & Dee's from the Ramones graves, nice place to walk around and see the celebrity graves of the who's who buried here. They had a bit of rain when we were here so there was some big puddles to navigate. Ps: check out the giant mausoleum's, would be very spooky at night.

Do not let the entrance put you off it is on a not so tidy back street area, lovely place to walk around and see some of the famous graves, some really impressive tomb stones Cecil B De Mills comes to mind, Dont forget to look behind you a see the Hollywood sign.

Get your walking shoes on! This place is bigger than you think! We found an interesting assortment of celebs here. Rudolph Valentino, Tyrone Power, Jayne Mansfield, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Jr., A monument to the dog Toto (The Wizard of Oz), a tribute to Hattie McDaniel (who was not allowed to be buried here because it was segregated at the time),
A private family mausoleum in the middle of a lake for William Clark, Jr., who was the founder of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Two of The Ramones, and even the famous gangster Bugsy Siegel! There are many beautiful stained glass windows and also a Rolls Royce hearse. In the summer, they have movie night, where people bring picnic baskets, chairs and blankets and watch films projected on the marble wall of the mausoleum. There are also music concerts. It's quite a beautiful place and worth a visit.

A little disappointing on the two days we visited. The cemetary closed early on both days with no advance notice. The main vaults were also locked up both days, so we didn't see many 'celebrity' resting places. I note that reviews talk about purchasing a map from the surly woman at the front gate. We ran into surly staffers, but no maps were available, so it was a real random walk around. Still - as the last place in LA with free parking, it wasn't a bad place to while away a few hours....
