The City: Hollywood Forever Cemetery

How have I NEVER heard of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Movie Screenings!? I've been here for three years and never heard of them. Then, this summer, I'm hearing about it all over the place! Blogs & Friends & Emails.

Natalie planned a little outing for Golddiggers of 1933 and it was fantastic!

Paola made the most adorable (and fantasticly tasting) cupcakes that ever happened.

Junior is visiting us from NY, so he came along.

Natalie & Greg.

Paola & Eric

Rob & Anne.

The gates open at 7:30, but the movie doesn't start until 9:00, so Chris and I took a walk through the cemetery to snap some photos.

I wonder how much it costs to be buried in a house?

Since I started really shooting, I don't like to give up the camera anymore! But Chris asked really really nicely, so I let him play with the camera.

The movie was EXCELLENT! Total 1930s cheesetastic. I thoroughly enjoyed it, except for the last 20 minutes, when I fell asleep. Opps.

I made the Margarita Cookies again, but something was different. Perhaps too much salt. The batter was different. And I used a coarser sugar, but I don't think it was as sweet, so the salt was even more potent. And yet, I keep eating them :-)

That was a night to be repeated....I had so much fun with you guys, and we left thinking it was of the most fun yet weirdest evenings we have had in a long time!

I had a blast. Although, I feel guilty for giving Rob a hard time for wanting to catch a nap. I turned around and 3 people were napping.

I love the shot Chris took of you. Very ANTM. My favorite shot is the one you took of the movie projected on the side of the building. Excellent photo skills.

Ok, born and raised in Southern California and I have never heard of this before. Sounds like a fun/intersting/strange outing that must be done and that will be remembered forever. I want to go!
