Honoring Age-Old Traditions and Creating New Ones
A meaningful funeral or memorial service is an important step in the healing process. Hollywood Forever offers several beautiful venues for services, both outside on the cemetery’s beautiful grounds and inside its historic buildings.
The Main Chapel
The newly expanded main chapel seats up to 120, with additional capacity on the garden terraces. The main chapel adjoins the crematory, allowing ceremonies and memorials to conclude with a leave-taking in the crematory. This configuration makes Hollywood Forever especially accommodating of Buddhist, Hindu, and Sikh traditions.
The Hollywood Cathedral Mausoleum
Grand, elegant, and serene, the Hollywood Cathedral Mausoleum provides a majestic venue for a funeral or memorial service.
The Masonic Lodge
Located on the second floor of the cemetery’s administration building, the former headquarters of the Southland Masonic Temple is a unique, dramatic venue for a memorial service.
The Eastern Star Room
Originally the meeting room for the women’s auxiliary of the Southland Masonic Temple, the Eastern Star Room is a welcoming, sun-filled location for a memorial service or post-service reception.
The Fairbanks Reflecting Pool
The Fairbanks Gardens are an idyllic setting for those who choose to hold a service enveloped in the beauty of the cemetery’s grounds.
Graveside, Cryptside, or Nicheside Ceremonies
Sometimes the most intimate services can be the most meaningful. Opting to conduct the entire service at the place of interment — grave, crypt, or cremation niche — is often the best decision for smaller gatherings.
