Cinespia Cemetery Screenings

May 8, 2013 — Leave a comment

Cinespia is an organization that hosts on-site screenings of classic films in and around Los Angeles. They show films from the 1930s through the 1990s. The al fresco Hollywood Forever Cemetery screenings take place on the Fairbanks Lawn (so named for the adjacent crypt housing both Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Jr.), and films are digitally projected against the west wall of the Cathedral Mausoleum, which houses the crypt of Rudolph Valentino among many others.

Cemetery screenings are held very Saturday all summer long! It’s fun to hang out, picnic, and watch fun, old movies outside under the stars with hundreds of others doing just the same.
