This Saturday August 1st, the Cinespia Film Society will be screening director Billy Wilder’s 1959 comedy classic at the historic outdoor venue where movies are presented on the side of the cemetery’s mausoleum while the audience sits among the graves of Hollywood’s former luminaries.
If you were going to see a movie projected on a mausoleum while surrounded by the graves and tombs of Hollywood’s deceased elite, the Hollywood Forever Cemetery would be the place to see it. And the “Bride of Frankenstein” would be the film to see.
