Time Out Says

It isn’t summer in L.A. until the first cemetery screening brings hoards of movie-lovers to Hollywood Forever, toting folding chairs, picnic blankets, snack spreads and lots of booze.

Each year, Cinespia brings classic cult favorites to the hallowed resting place of such Old Hollywood greats, and after a spring spent as a Griffith Park drive-in, the series is headed back to the cemetery.

Pack a boozy picnic, pose in the photo booth and enjoy DJ sets, dance parties and all sorts of other magical mischief that’d otherwise be strictly forbidden behind the cemetery gates. It’s an L.A. rite of passage, a quintessential summer experience and one of the best film venues in the city. Just be sure to get your ticket early, arrive early, pee early… it’s a popular affair, to say the least.
