Cinespia, FYF and Ace present the first ever Halloween bash at the Ace in downtown Los Angeles.

Party in the famous haunted 1920s movie palace under a soaring gold ceiling and spooky towering lobby, and on the hotel’s gorgeous Broadway skyline rooftop.

The evening begins with a brand new, fully restored print of John Carpenter’s original HALLOWEEN, the ultimate horror movie projected on the big screen! Next, AVEY TARE’S SLASHER FLICKS perform live on stage, the latest (and scariest) musical incarnation from Animal Collective’s resident psychopath.

At the witching hour the dance party begins with the legendary J. ROCC of the Beat Junkies. Visit the HAUNTED HALLWAY upstairs and witness the theatre’s ghostly past in a Halloween maze designed by Cinespia.

The Ace rooftop features two bars, a jacuzzi pool and fireplace under a gothic tower where DJs spin all night long. In the theatre visit our themed photo booth or five full bars, valid ID necessary to partake in spirits. Costume required for entry to event.

With DJs Zach Cowie (Wooden Wisdom), Amason (Dungen and Miike Snow), Clifton Weaver (Funky Sole), Neil Schield (Origami Vinyl) and special surprise guests. Visuals by artist Abigail Portner.


Cinespia’s September 2014 Calendar of Cemetery Movie Screenings Announced!

Celebrate Cinespia’s Summer Season Finale with Pink and Purple Hues, a Ride through the Cyber Matrix, and a Real (or is it?) Nightmare of a Demon Party

Join Cinespia under the stars for our September 2014 series of film classics at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Sign up for our mailing list to get updates on upcoming special film screenings at local Los Angeles theaters in the Fall, Winter and Spring.
September outdoor movie screenings include:

PRETTY IN PINK on August 31st, starring Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy.

“For the Labor Day Holiday Weekend the John Hughes classic gets the Cinespia treatment. Rife with 80s fashion, colorful characters and genuine teen angst, Pretty in Pink completes the trilogy of Molly Ringwald masterpieces Hughes began with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Andie is a poor girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Andrew McCarthy is a rich boy who asks her out. Can they find love amidst so many differences? And what about Duckie? Join us for this special screening under the stars.”



PURPLE RAIN on September 6th, starring Prince.

“Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, the film debut of the Purple One still has the power to awe. His searing concert performances, replete with stage humping, lacy outfits and prolific guitar shredding are undeniable. His idiosyncratic music drips with both virtuosity and eroticism. The movie has a plot, too. As Prince struggles for success and the amorous attentions of the ravishing Appollonia, we get a fun glimpse into the 80s Minneapolis scene that Prince single-handedly defined… But it is the music that has made Purple Rain a powerful classic. DJ Questlove spins records (and more) before and after the film.”



THE MATRIX on September 13th, starring Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne.

“With its 90s rave sensibilities and Y2K paranoia, The Matrix has become pleasantly goofy around the edges, but the special effects still have the power to drop your jaw, a combination that makes for great fun. The Wachowski Brothers attempt to create an ‘intellectual action movie’ through a world that blends fascinating ideas with elaborately orchestrated kung fu action. The cybergoth world of ruined Victorian mansions, abandoned subway platforms, and rooftops high above the city create a mise en scene that would define science fiction for years. Great fun.”



ROSEMARY’S BABY on September 20th, starring Mia Farrow and John Cassavettes.

“Roman Polanski’s haunting masterpiece lies at the intersection of the art film and the horror movie. Rosemary’s Baby is at once supremely intelligent and totally scary. Steeped in dream-like montages, colorful characters and pitch perfect paranoia, it is without a doubt one of the greatest horror films ever made. A young couple moves into a spooky building with an infamous past. Is a coven of witches after Rosemary’s unborn child, or is she going crazy? Mia Farrow’s performance is superb: she is at once vulnerable and resolute as she fends for herself and her baby. Join us for our last screening of the summer season.”





Listen to DJ Derek James playlist from SWINGERS. He joins us again this Saturday for GOLDFINGER at the cemetery.


Cinespia’s August Calendar of Cemetery Movie Screenings Announced!

From Casablanca to Neverending Story Enjoy your Late Summer Evenings with Cinespia…

Join us under the stars for our August 2014 series of film classics at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Upcoming outdoor movie screenings include:

CASABLANCA on August 2nd, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman

“Gripping, beautiful and genuinely moving, this espionage thriller has become one of the most celebrated films of all time. Bogart’s cool demeanor belies a heart of gold when he encounters an old flame in the war-torn exotic city of Casablanca. Ingrid Bergman is never more ravishing, desperate and courageous, and romance never more delicate than in this timeless classic.”



NAPOLEON DYNAMITE on August 7th, starring Jared Hess

“10 year anniversary screening: see director Jared Hess and star Jon Heder in person! Co-presented by the Sundance Institute, Napoleon Dynamite kicks off the 2014 “Next Weekend” Festival. Follow the exploits of Napoleon Dynamite as he draws a Liger, rules at tetherball and campaigns to get Pedro elected class President! Proceeds benefit Sundance Institute.”



THE OUTSIDERS on August 9th, starring Matt Dillon

“Coppola’s iconic portrait of youth gone wild is alternately fierce and eerily beautiful. It’s the greasers versus the socs, as bravery and friendship are put to the test. When two poor greasers, Johnny and Ponyboy, are assaulted, tension begins to mount between the two rival gangs. The Outsiders stars the brightest stars of a generation, including Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Tom Cruise, Ralph Maccio, C Thomas Howell and Emilio Estevez.”



MOVIES FROM DUSK TIL DAWN: FANTASY FILMS ALL NIGHT from Saturday Night to Sunday Morning, August 16th to 17th

“Join us for the Fourth Annual Movies All Night cinema celebration! That’s right, from dusk til dawn we’ll be showing movies under the stars. This year’s theme is Fantasy Movies! We’ll start the night off with The Neverending Story and continue with sword and sorcery favorites and other fantastical film ephemera through the night. Bring blankets and pillows, make a nest and see some of the most magical movies of the silver screen. Come early, come late, stay all night!!!”



THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY on August 23rd, starring Cameron Diaz

“Romance and raunch have never lived so naturally side by side as in There’s Something About Mary, the brilliant 90s comedy from the Farrelly Brothers. Ted (Ben Stiller) gets a chance to meet up with his dream girl from high school, but he’ll have to beat the competition. Uproarious tense scenes are tempered with romance: ultimately these guys only want to be loved by Mary, no matter what they have to do! There’s just something about her… Starring a stunning Cameron Diaz, Stiller at the top of his game and Matt Dillon in his most hilarious role, There’s Something About Mary set the tone for the next decade of comedy and remains the funniest film of the era.”



A CLOCKWORK ORANGE on August 23rd, Stanley Kubrick’s Masterpiece starring Malcom McDowell

“Kubrick’s extraordinary vision of a dystopic future is a demented fun house ride of a political satire. Pulsating with pop imagery, vivid colors and synth melodies, it is a future of wild design and psychedelic cool. Malcolm Macdowell is superb as Alex, a modern youth with a taste for violence who becomes the subject of a state experiment. A Clockwork Orange is a film only Kubrick could bring us: at once brainy, unsettling and darkly funny.”
