About Hollywood Forever


Hollywood Forever is a full-service funeral home, crematory, cemetery, and cultural events center in the heart of Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Founded in 1899, the cemetery is one of the world’s most visited landmarks, and the final resting place of hundreds of Hollywood legends, including Judy Garland, Cecil B. DeMille, Rudolph Valentino, Mickey Rooney, Tyrone Power, Douglas Fairbanks, Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone, Valerie Harper, Chris Cornell, and hundreds of others, alongside thousands of neighborhood residents and individuals from across the globe.

The functioning cemetery and mortuary offers lawn spaces, cremation services, cremation niches, mausoleum crypts and memorial services, and the Beth Olam section is one of the oldest, active Jewish cemeteries in California.

As Los Angeles’ most dynamic cultural event center, Hollywood Forever welcomes families and visitors to concerts, films, and events each year. Since 2000, Hollywood Forever has partnered with Cinespia to present cinema screenings in the summer on the Fairbanks Lawn, and the cemetery’s Dia de Los Muertos celebration is the largest outside of Mexico, attracting visitors from all over the world. Paramount Studios was built on the undeveloped south end of the original site, where the studio still operates, and the cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Sites in 1999.

Never been here for the movie nights. But this place is really calm and peaceful. No creepy vibes at all just a beautiful place to visit and reflect. Bonus: they have peacocks that just roam freely around the cemetery

Otis (Otis/Chandler) rests here along with his wife. Parking is Free and the mausoleum closes at 2:00 p.m. Yelchin family---St. Petersberg--who were celebrating their son's (Anton) life at this site. Red/white roses decorated Anton's grave and five (who all loved Anton) were spending the day with views of the blue skies filled with cumulonimbus clouds, while geese cackled and visitors wandered. Anna was cordial (floral shop) offering tropical flowers and directory to this venue. Yelchins'---Irina Korina and Vicktor are a famous Russian ice-skating team. Sorry for the angelic loss, memories are immortal.

Very well maintained Cemetary full of history. It is right next to Paramount Studios so the water tower is a nice backdrop. Lots of celebs and family plots.
