    Welcome to Hollywood where even our dead have a happening nightlife! Roll out a blanket and get cozy with a few hundred of your closest friends.

    Great venue! Get there early to get a good spot. Definitely recommend blankets, chairs (low to ground), a tarp and food! Good times all around

    A fab venue for seeing movies au naturel ! Get there when gates open to ensure a good spot on the lawn and don't forget a picnic!

    Best spots are at the back of the lawn, right off the street/walkway—less crowded, quick in/out for bathroom visits, and easy for meeting up with friends.

    Try to arrive at least an hour before gates open, once you make your way through the gates head to the right side of the screen in the front. It's the least crowded. Photo booth photos are free online

    Definitely pay for reserved parking. No waiting in line and loads of time to get great seats, picnic and visit grave sites before movie. Excellent venue!!

    Picnic at the cemetary while you get to watch a (typically cult) classic movie. The crowds are large, but it still feels intimate. Get there early

    If you can buy a parking pass, do so. Saves you the wait outside and makes it quicker to get out. Alcohol is allowed and if you being lawn chairs, make sure they're low!

    Gets crowded earlier and earlier. Get tickets early, get to the line early, get ready for a long, potentially fun wait. Oh, and don't forget your sunblock!

    Get there early, 4:45 is best. Bring bug spray to combat squitos. It gets chilly and damp so bring a jacket and plenty of blankets for snuggling! Low chairs. Wine & yummy nosh are a must.

    The walkway is for walking, not for stopping and standing around to watch the movie, blocking the screen from the people behind you. You will get yelled at!

    You don't need to line up at 4. Just time it so that you're one of the first cars at the gate when it opens. Extra $5 for parking inside is totally worth it on a very busy night.

    We have group rides during the summer to the cemetery screenings. They let the motorcycles and scooters in before the cars. Be sure to bring a blanket and some grub.

    The guards will try to cramp your style, but if you can, get to the island and make out under cover of the willows
