This Saturday see Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday!

Saturday, July 6th
Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Directed by William Wyler
(1953, 118 mins)

My favorite all-time actress, Audrey Hepburn, my childhood idol!  How I wanted to be Audrey Hepburn.  I did my best! See her in Roman Holiday this Saturday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, behind Paramount Studios.  There is this crazy mix of famous people buried there from Douglas Fairbanks to Ramones, and many new Russians and Armenians with headstones etched with their portraits.  Truly a site to see!  On Day of the Dead (El Dia de los Muertes) it is filled with altars in memory of families.

Audrey Hepburn stars as a princess who, yearning for life outside the castle walls, escapes onto the streets of Rome while visiting Italy. Gregory Peck stars as the street-wise and dashing reporter who discovers her and shows her how joyous ordinary life and love can be. A marvelous modern fairy tale both thoughtful and moving from a master director. Join everyone under the stars for this classic romance.

Bring a picnic dinner, blankets and pillows for the lawn.
DJ John Tripp spins records before and after the screening.
