Hollywood greats – underfoot and on screen


On September 18th, the Cinespia crew are set to end their tenth season of post-sundown, open-air classic movie screenings in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on LA’s Santa Monica Boulevard with a showing of Night of the Living Dead.

For the princely sum of $10, moviegoers can take their choice of beverage, some suitably gruesome vittles (or ‘just eat someone’s brains’, as one wag put it), and settle down for George A Romero’s 1968 zombie classic. DJ Nobody will be providing pre- and post-movie tuneage…

Those interred at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery include directors Cecil B DeMille and John Huston; actors Fay ‘King Kong’ Wray, Rudolph Valentino, Mel ‘Bugs Bunny’ Blanc, Peter Lorre, Jayne Mansfield and (most fittingly) Maila ‘Vampira’ Nurmi; plus music greats Dee Dee Ramone, Sinatra arranger Nelson Riddle and Yma Sumac.

Cinespia have been running their ‘I see movies with dead people’ seasons since 1992, all featuring the cream of Hollywood underfoot and on the screen plus DJ action from the likes of Andy Votel and Cut Chemist. Now, that’s real Hollywood style…

If only our local council would let us show the classic British zombie biker flick, Psychomania, in Twerton Cemetery!
