Cinespia is basically a bunch of outdoor screenings of classic films in and around Los Angeles. They show classic (or at least semi-classic) films from the 30s to the 1990s, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Tonight’s screening is: Animal House. Doors open at 6:45pm, Movie at 8:30pm. (But, this screening isĀ SOLD OUT already, if you don’t have tickets.)

Animal House

This screening is not free. Tickets cost $14 bucks on the Cinespia website. You print your Tickets and your parking pass from there.

Gates open at 6:30pm. Show starts at 8:30pm, when Mother Nature turns down the lights.

Here are the basics from the Cinespia website (for Hollywood Forever):

Movie screenings are held outdoors on Fairbanks Lawn, a grassy field inside Hollywood Forever Cemetery, under open skies.


Bring blankets, pillows or low chairs that have a seat which rests on the ground with a low back.
Allowable chair height from ground to seat is 6″ and from seat to top of chair 21″.


Bring a picnic dinner and drinks, wine and beer are permitted, no spirits please.


A small tarp underneath your blanket is recommended.


DJs spin music as the sun sets, and again after the movie.


Tickets for admission and parking are printed out at home and scanned at the gate by our staff.

And Cinespia has their own Parking portion of the website:

A parking pass allows you to park on the cemetery grounds and walk directly to the lawn.


Additional parking is available at the Paramount Lot at 801 N Gower, patrons who park here will enter the cemetery on foot through the Santa Monica Blvd gates and exit out the Gower gates across from the lot.


Special access seating and handicapped parking are available, just ask our staff for assistance.

But their website is here, if you have any more questions.
