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

Founded in 1899, the national cemetery is one of the world's most historic places, 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. And is also the burial site of thousands of neighborhood residents and individuals from across the globe.

The functioning crematory, mortuary, funeral home and cemetery provide lawn spaces, memorial services, cremation niches, cremation services, mausoleum crypts and a range of premium cemetery services. 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.

This isn’t t where Marilyn Monroe is buried - I found that out (thanks Wikipedia), but there are hundreds of celebrities here from Judy Garland to Chris Cornell which kinda surprised me. I bought the official guide and talked with a lovely woman at the gift shop about the history of the place.
