HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY



On my way back to NY I stop ed in Los Angeles and did a little more exploring.This time I combined my love of cinema,stars and cemeteries,paying a visit to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.





This is the final resting place to more of Hollywood’s founders and stars than anywhere else in the world. Originally called Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery, this is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles. It is located in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles, adjacent to the north wall, or back, of Paramount Studios. Founded in 1899, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Visitors come from all over to pay respects to Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and hundreds more of Hollywood’s greatest stars.









The cemetery is active and regularly hosts community events, including music events and summer movie screenings on weekends,bringing an average of 3.000 people.

















One of my all times favorites




How fitting for all this stars to be buried under the Hollywood sign in the background

A bientôt,
