    Cinespia sponsors the Summer Series "Cemetery Screenings". This is a great event, and could just as easily be racked under "local customs" for the large Angeleno turnout.

    The Cemetery Screenings are true local events. Each Saturday during the Summer, a different movie is screened on the wall of the mortuary at the famed "Hollywood Forever" Cemetery. Swarms of hipsters gather at the entrance, picnic baskets in hand, and wait eagerly for the gates to open. The films track towards Hollywood's golden age ("Psycho", "Chinatown"), but the lineup can vary. This one evening, "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" played, and all the major cast members showed up to celebrate the showing!

    Bring your own wine and food - as well as blankets, flashlights, and a boardgame. Select DJs spin before the film begins, as well. Great time!

    Dress Code: Casual - but don't be surprised if everyone around you looks like a famous rock star or celeb on the down low. Entrance is $10/pp "donation". But, don't be fooled. "Donation" here means "pay it".

    Something different: below and above the stars

    Hollywood Forever (Hollywood Cemetery) and Sinespia has gotten together to make below and above the stars. Here you can watch an old film while picnicing in the cemetery.

    Dress Code: There is no dress code, but it does get cold at night. I recommend a warm blanket and a jacket.
