Join a real outdoor party with thousands of other people to watch iconic movies at the cemetery! It's a truly unique experience: bring your own blankets, pillows, comfy stuff, pack a picnic, bring refreshing drinks, and chill out with mind alike people. Also, there is a themed photo booth for each event. Make sure to take photos there. One photo is free online, any printed photos are $15. After the movie is over, there is a DJ playing, so you are welcome to stay for another hour to relax or party. It is such an Angelino thing to do!
Picnic with friends
Pro Tip: You are allowed to bring your own alcohol! And arrive EARLY! There is lots of fun things to do and entering the cemetery takes some time.
A movie showing in a cemetery? Why not?! This is so LA! Recommend getting here early because Melrose gets pretty packed as the show starts. You're able to bring a low chair and your own picnic to enjoy too. They also allow you to bring beer and wine as well! However, if you forget or don't feel like packing they also sell snacks and drinks there. Bring a blanket and a mat to rest on and enjoy the show!
What a cool idea and event. Lots of people so do go as early as possible to get a good spot. Bring lots of stuff to be comfortable both on the grass and food/drink wise. Also recommend a chair or at least something that can hold your back upright. They have lots of toilets. At the end of the screening there’s music for dancing. Really cool.
If you don't like crowds, this might not be for you. But this is one of the best experiences! They show movies in the Hollywood Cemetery! Get there early early early!!! even if you are far back, try to sit in the center/middle. Bring more blankets than you think you need...CA gets cold at night. You can bring all the food and drinks you want so bring a feast! Make sure to get pillows or some type of low chair so you are comfy for the entire movie.
I love coming here every summer to watch my favorite movies. We bring our own low chairs and blankets, food and beer.. They keep you separated from those that have chairs and those that perfer lay on their blankets. I usually get there 2 hours before they open the gates and just wait in line. It's a small walk from the front entrance to behind the cemetery where the grassy area is located. They have potable toilets here. You can buy popcorn and drinks from the food stand. I've been coming here for 3 years now. Never a disappointment so far. Oh and I can't forget to mention the dj's that are playing the music while you're sitting and eating before the movie starts. I have enjoyed listening to the D j's playing their music.
