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.
Up to 3,500 patrons per screening attend and bring blankets, pillows, picnic dinners, alcoholic beverages, and candles and enjoy screenings under the stars, while a staff of 35 keep things running smoothly. DJ’s play music before and after the screenings over a portable sound system.
Movie screenings are held outdoors on Fairbanks Lawn, an open grassy field inside the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and under the stars. You may bring a picnic dinner and drinks. Wine and beer are permitted, but no spirits please. Bring blankets, pillows or low chairs that have a seat that rests on the ground with a low back (tall Chairs are NOT allowed). A tarp under blanket is recommended.
