Hollywood Forever Cemetery information
Next to Paramount Pictures, Hollywood Forever boasts lavish landscaping, over-the-top tombstones, epic mausoleums and a roll call of departed superstars. Residents include Cecil B DeMille, Rudolph Valentino, femme fatale Jayne Mansfield and punk-rock icons Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone. For a full list of residents, pick up a map ($5) at the flower shop (open from 9am to 5pm).
But these hallowed grounds are anything but dead. Summer brings outdoor movie screenings and Shakespeare in the Cemetery, while in November the gates open for Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
