  • a fascinating stop in LA, definitely worth a day trip. Honestly it’s a beautiful facility and allows for some great conversations and meditation on the topics of fame, and death. I will be back for sure!
  • For been a cemetery, unless you know is there, you wouldn't know that it is. The front of the main building is beautiful & it is also a historic place. The growns look pretty & well kept as well.
  • It's a real piece of Hollywood history. Next to Paramount Studios on Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood. Tours, movie nights, gorgeous scenery, random appearances by Lana Del Rey, animals and celebrities. Although like any cemetery it's sad and somber, it's beautiful to see how these lives are loved.
  • While the location is wild, the acoustics aren't the best. I mean I know it's a lodge and really not supposed to be used as a music venue, but I dunno, a little disappointing. Feels pretty cool driving through a cemetary to get there to be honest. Parking is also free!
