It’s been at least 2 years since I signed my email up for Cinespia updates and I finally made it out last Saturday for the James Cameron classic, “The Terminator”. (I mean, c’mon – Sarah Connor’s big hair; Schwarzenegger’s one-liners; state of the art robotics – all the makings of a classic, no?)
A screening by Cinespia is definitely one of the best things to do in LA during the hot summer, particularly because the cemetery is such a beautiful venue. Plus, their repertoire appeals to almost any audience so you’re bound to find a movie you’d love to see on the big screen. For my next screening, it has to be a Cary Grant film – hands down.
The only downside (or upside, depending on how you look at it) is the long waiting time. To get good seats, it’s recommended that you wait in line at 5PM at the earliest. Cinespia opens the doors at 7PM, and the movie starts at 8:30PM. In all, that’s at least 3 1/2 hours of downtime. So here are some tips that will help make your future trip to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery a memorable one.
