Hollywood Forever Cemetery is a full-service cemetery, funeral home, crematory, and cultural events center which regularly hosts community events such as live music at their Masonic Lodge and summer movie screenings on the Fairbanks lawn as part of Cinespia. It is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles, California, and is located at 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles. It was founded in 1899 as Hollywood Cemetery by Jules Roth, and, from 1939, was known as Hollywood Memorial Park until 1998 when it was given its current name. The studios of Paramount Pictures are located at the south end of the same block, on 40 acres that were once part of the cemetery which held no interments.
