Located on the same block as Paramount Pictures, Hollywood Forever is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles, and the final resting place for numerous Hollywood studio founders, actors, directors, writers, and performers from the entertainment industry. Notable industry burials include Alfred Hitchcock, Cecil B. DeMille, Judy Garland, Rudolph Valentino, and Maila Nurmi. In recent years, it has also attracted rock and rollers such as Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone, and Chris Cornell.
Despite a checkered past, this fascinating landmark has in recent years been furbished to its original splendor and is not only an active cemetery and funeral home, but a thriving and unique venue for cultural events. Summer is an especially great time to make a visit, watch a movie, or catch a concert. You can view their calendar here
