Guide to Summer, Part 2: The Country’s Best Picnic Spots

Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood CA

It’s hard to beat the Cinespia outdoor screenings in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. If you get there at dusk, you can stroll past the graves of entertainment greats and visit the peacocks who roam the grounds daily. Before the movie, a DJ typically spins beats while folks chomp on dinner. It can be eerie to picnic at night in a cemetery, but watching Easy Rider or Harold and Maude projected against the side of a mausoleum ends up feeling quite life affirming. – Jane McCarthy
