Forest Lawn is celebrating 100 years of service through art,
music and landscape with the debut of a new historical DVD that
chronicles the history of Forest Lawn in the context of local
events, cultural shifts, politics, and business.
The DVD, "Forest Lawn, The First Hundred Years," is a 36-minute
film that tells the transformation of desolate land becoming
the beautiful environment we know today as Forest Lawn.
The film describes how Forest Lawn became the best-known Memorial-Park
in the world by combining innovative business ideas, art, and
architecture to create some of the most beautiful memorial vistas
in the world. The DVD allows watchers to experience countless
treasures of stained glass, marble statuary, breathtaking churches,
and inspired landscapes, and witness the rescuing of Leonardo
Da Vinci's "The Last Supper." With this film, viewers can see
the evolution of Forest Lawn through its trials and tribulations
from a traditional cemetery into what is now known as the Memorial-Parks.
The DVD, priced at $14.95, will be available February 20th at
the Forest Lawn Museum stores.
