Los Angeles is famous for its movie stars, classic films, and television shows. Take pleasure in all three at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, one of the most unique places to visit in the city. During summer weekends and holidays, round up your friends and head to the Fairbanks Lawn for a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience. Once the sun goes down, the lights go up. Settle in under the stars with a smart crowd of movie fans as beloved shows are projected onto the Cathedral Mausoleum wall. It’s a communal affair that’s always magical. Sure, you can watch Back to the Future anywhere, but only at Hollywood Forever can you have the thrill of taking a picture in front of the actual DeLorean driven by Marty McFly. Bring comfy blankets to lie on and warm clothes—it gets breezy at night—and fill up a cooler with snacks and refreshments. Arrive early to explore the famous gravestones nearby, where you can pay homage to all-time legends. Get ready for your close-up next to Cecil B. DeMille. Rock out in front of Johnny Ramone. Do your best Bugs Bunny impression above Mel Blanc. You won’t be the first, and you definitely won’t be the last. You can also catch concerts at The Masonic Lodge, an intimate venue inside the cemetery. The mix of great entertainment and Hollywood royalty makes this one of those incredible L.A. things you could never do anywhere else.
