Hollywood Forever Cemetery – Los Angeles, CA

Located behind the Paramount Studios, it was founded in 1899 on 100 acres and called Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery. Its history is as colorful as the movie heritage that surrounds it. Filled with show business luminaries, the formerly decaying bankrupted property was raised from the dead when Tyler Cassity purchased it in 1998 and turned it into Hollywood Forever. Restored and refurbished, it is the most unique modern cemetery in the world. It features "LifeStory" tributes presented on a kiosk, a funeral chapel equipped with a Plasma-vision wide-screen, live worldwide webcasts of funeral services, plus a gift shop were you can purchase a map to find the famous. The back wall which holds the baby area is filled with individual shrines.
Plays are held in the restored Masonic Lodge and in the summer people can picnic on the lawn while watching classic movies project on a mausoleum wall.
Hollywood Forever is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

Here's Mel Blanc but you can also find Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino and Douglas Fairbanks, to name a few.
