Paper Moon at Hollywood Forever

There’s something so Southern California about watching movies outside on a summer night. I’ve been *dying* to experience Cinespia movie screenings at the Hollywood Forever cemetery, but friends continually refused to go. Some said they were worried about sitting “on top of dead people,” others said they didn’t feel like dealing with crowds. I finally went last weekend so let me just tell all of you the following: the audience does NOT sit on graves, and the crowd and traffic control is far more organized, relaxed and stress-free than expected. It’s a great time all around. If you go just be sure to bring a sweater… it does get cold in the cemetery at night. And bring a nice bottle of wine. Just because life’s more fun that way.

The movie is $10, and it’s $5 extra to park on the cemetery grounds which we did. As I said, it was very organized and our cars ended up being a *very* short walk to the screen. There are two more screenings left in the season according to the Cinespia website. This Saturday night is Singing In The Rain and August 29th is American Werewolf in London.
