Cinespia Film Screenings at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery


The Cinespia film screenings at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery have started up again. Woo hoo!

Screenings are on Saturdays and Sundays. Attendees bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, food and drink and enjoy movies within the comfort of a beautiful cemetery. Classic mid-century films and cult favorites are projected on the white marble wall of Rudolph Valentino's tomb.

Last year's line-up included many fabulous films, such as PeeWee's Big Adventure and A Clockwork Orange.

The Cinespia website only lists the film screenings for the month of May so far, which include:

May 16 - Cool Hand Luke (dammit, I missed this one)
May 23 - To Catch a Thief
May 24 - Dazed and Confused
May 30 - Sleeper

And if you plan to attend, arrive early to get a good spot.

All fab movies...to Catch a Thief one of my favorites...and to watch them outdoors in a cemetary..if only I loved closer. I wonder if Ninth Gate would play there?

That is cool as sh*t, but I'm on the other side of the country. I'm very big on cemetery's though, check out today's post. It's so weird that we both did a cemetery post on the same day. (humming scary movie music)

Oh my goodness, this sounds amazing!! I wish that I were anywhere near there, as I would likely even travel several hours for this!!

Enjoy the films for me!

They used to do this in Hawaii on the beach. It was fantastic, but we never got Cool Hand Luke. It was always some tripe like Armageddon. Ugh.

I went to their 'Dia De los Muertos' event last year. They should play zombie movies to scare the shit out of little kids.

TheBeautyFile said...

I could watch Dazed & Confused over and over again until I die.

La Belette Rouge said...
