Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Hollywood Forever (née Hollywood Memorial Park) is one of the oldest and most recognizable cemeteries in Los Angeles. Located next door to Paramount Studios, it has long been a go-to for movies and TV shows that need to film in a cemetery. It has also become a go-to resting place for the rich and famous. Graves of silent era idols and modern rock icons dot the picturesque grounds. And a fair number of wandering peacocks for that matter. If you are into such things, you can also watch movies in the cemetery at one of the many public events that happen year-round.
