Hollywood Forever Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles, California in the United States. It is located at 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. The studios of Paramount Pictures is located at the south end of the same block on 40 acres that were once part of the cemetery, but held no interments. The renowned individuals who are interred in the graves, crypts, niches, and sarcophagi of the cemetery include culturally significant people as well as celebrities, including iconic actors, directors, writers, etc. from the entertainment industry. People who played vital roles in shaping Los Angeles are also interred throughout the property. The cemetery is interactive and regularly hosts community events, including music and summer movie screenings. In 2011, the cemetery acted as co-production company for the American silent movie Silent Life based on the story of the Hollywood idol Rudolph Valentino, who is famously entombed there in what was originally a borrowed crypt.
