The folks at Cinespia--otherwise known as the masterminds behind the Hollywood Forever Cemetery movie screenings--have done it again! They've dug up (appropriate word) a much-loved film classic to share with Angelenos.
The 1974 film Chinatown, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, will screen on Saturday, June 23rd at 9 p.m. at the cemetery (gates open at 7:30 p.m.).
If you're new to LA, this Roman Polanski movie will be an eye-opener into LA's cultural history and geography. It's chock full of great So.Cal location shots, from The Brown Derby to Catalina Island. And, of course, the movie's central Film Noir narrative revolves around the San Fernando Valley.
Entrance donation is $10 at the gate. Bring blankets, picnic baskets, low lawn chairs, you know the drill. And if you don't, learn more by reading about Hollywood Forever Cemetery and its events.
