Reviewed 3 August 2014

Easy to get lost in. Cemetery map was expensive and hard to follow. There are some extravagant markers in that cemetery.

“Johnny Ramone!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Hollywood Forever is a great place to get away from all people and cars and hassles of L.A. for a little while. Lots of celebrity final resting places to seek out. It makes for a good walking tour of the grounds. You might get lucky and get to buy a bacon wrapped hot dog aka the L.A. dog from a vendor on the street on your walk to the front gates. A word about the annual Dia de Los Muertos festival held here. It used to be a very cool event where you could see memorial family members create to remember their relatives. Its kinda turned into a corporate sponsored drinking party. especially toward sundown. The heart has gone out of it. The cemetery itself however is always worth a stop.

“Best experience in L.A.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

After a few days visiting the LA area, the Cinespia movie screening at the Hollywood forever cemetery was like a breath of fresh air. Great atmosphere outside in the cemetery at night and fabulous vibes from the crowd seeing the movie. The audience engaged with the movie without being distracting and the eating and drinking was a definite plus without getting out of control. Worth it to pay for the parking pass so you don't have to stand in line forever, just make sure to try and show up just before they open the gates because spots fill up quickly on the lawn.

“Great for Cemetery Buffs”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Lots of celebrities and musicians are buried here in Forever Cemetery.Everyone from Mel Blanc to Don Adams to Carl Switzer, aka Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. Easy to get to and there's a great view of the Hollywood sign as you exit the cemetery. The cemetery is huge but you can go to the small gift shop like we did and buy a map of where all the famous celebrities are buried for $5.00 . Beautiful peacocks roam the park. There's also a Buddhist burial area that's interesting too near the front entrance and public bathrooms. Plan on spending about two hours here.If your into cemeteries or just want to do something different in L.A then come check this place out.

“Great Movie Experience!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

You must be asking, great movie experience? On Saturday evenings during the summer months they show a movie agains one of the mausoleum and it's a great experience. You can bring your own food and drinks and that includes alcohol. The movies that are shown are older movies...the night we went they showed Jaws. Haven't seen that movie in years and it was a nice evening and I couldn't believe how many people showed up. Would recommend buying tickets in advance and if you do any research you will hear a lot of negative comments about paying to park on the crowds but we came later (before the movie started) and we didn't have any problems getting out after the movie ended. If you arrive early you will stand in line (up to 2 hours) and with so much to do in Hollywood I would rather sit further back and not waste 2 hours in line and see other things in the area. Recommend taking a blanket to sit on and a blanket to cover up. Definitely take your own food and alcohol beverages. If you go you won't be disappointed that you went.
