About Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Hollywood Forever is an old fashioned cemetery containing many imposing tall old headstones and towering monuments, including a few unusual shaped ones such as obelisks and rocket ships.
This cemetery is so picturesque with its lake and tall palm trees, that it has been used as a background location for many Hollywood movies including Hot Shots starring Charlie Sheen and L.A.Story starring Steve Martin.
The two mausoleums, containing many Hollywood film stars, have beautiful interiors full of marble and coloured stain glass windows. As you enter each mausoleum please note the names of the various hallways and corridors are named on the tiled floor.
Established in 1899 and celebrating its 107th year anniversary this year as Los Angeles's oldest memorial park, Hollywood Forever is a unique cemetery, not only because of the famous people interred there, it has many events that not only honor the dead but celebrate them too..
