28th Annual Hollywood Forever
Cemetery Walking Tour
Hollywood Forever Cemetery
6000 Santa Monica Boulevard
Tour one of Old Hollywood’s most sought after “afterworld” addresses as the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles retells Hollywood’s History by the people buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. This historical site is the final resting place for a pantheon of stars, movie moguls and early pioneers including Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, Tyrone Power, C.B. De Mille, and Griffith J. Griffith, and other high-flying Angelenos.
The 110 year-old cemetery showcases an elegant (and eclectic) collection of monument styles, shrines and mausoleums, which attest that our forefathers died as stylishly as they lived. Guided walking tours will explore Old Hollywood through the lives, and deaths of these glamorous and mostly outspoken citizens, those who mapped Hollywood, and those who put Hollywood on the map. The first tour leaves at 10:00 am with subsequent tours departing at approximately 20-minute intervals. The last group leaves at noon. Each tour lasts approximately 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
