With Cinespia’s beyond-popular summer outdoor film series on hiatus for the season, Hollywood Forever Cemetery continues to be a year-round attraction thanks to film historian Karie Bible’s walking tours of the vaunted graveyard. The Cemetery of the Stars Tour gives you the basic overview, from the pond-side bench that marks Tyrone Powers’ final resting place to the often whiskey-bottle-cluttered grave of John Huston and Rudolph Valentino’s modest crypt. On select days, you can take the Jewish Heritage Tour, which includes the grave of Bugsy Siegel and an Anne Frank memorial, or the Hidden Hollywood Tour, which promises to “uncover the lost stars and obscure names forgotten by time.” Bible, a slender redhead who leads you through the grounds glammed up in black vintage gowns, also offers private tours by appointment. 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Hlywd.
