Post-Mortem Stargazing

Given the wild success of the Cinespia movie screenings at Hollywood Forever, as well as the recent early-morning Bon Iver concert there, it's probably easy to forget that oh, yeah, people are buried here.

The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles is throwing a walking tour this Saturday to help you get back in touch with the real, creepy reason that Hollywood Forever exists. The group's 26th annual Halloween-themed cemetery walking tour will include guided walking tours every 20 minutes from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Oct. 10. Admission is $13.


Visitors can expect to learn about the legendary people who mapped Hollywood, including Col. Griffith J. Griffith, Hollywood founder Harvey Wilcox, as well as stars and movie moguls who put Hollywood on the map-Rudolph Valentino, Tyrone Power, Marion Davies, Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, Fay Wray, Cecil B. Demille and many more.

The Art Deco Society "is a 501(c)(3) educational organization dedicated to the awareness of Art Deco as a major influence in the twentieth century and beyond."
