The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles returns to Hollywood Forever Cemetery to share the life stories (including the scandals!) of early Hollywood's pioneers, movie stars and moguls.
The 2-1/2-hour docent walking tour is highlighted by some living history «visits» with several of the luminaries buried there. Founded in 1899, Hollywood Forever is the final resting place of silent film swashbuckler Douglas Fairbanks, heart throb Rudolph Valentino, film director Cecil B. DeMille, actress Marion Davies and many other legendary Los Angelinos.
Tours depart from the fountain, inside the main gate. Check in upon arrival with the Art Deco Society table near the front gates. (Last outgoing tour leaves at 12 noon and finishes at 2:30 PM). Choose from several tour times. The tour is approximately 2.5 hours.
