Where Is Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds' Public Memorial? It's The Perfect Way For Fans To Pay Their Respects
On Saturday, March 25, fans of this famous mother-daughter duo can pay their respects thanks to a public memorial service. So just where is Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' public memorial? If you live on the West Coast in Southern California, then there is a good chance you'll be able to attend. As revealed by Reynolds' son and Fisher's brother, Todd Fisher, on his official website, the tribute for the public will be held in Los Angeles at the Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills at the Freedom Theater.
Per a post written by Todd about the memorial, "We will be celebrating their lives with friends, family members, and the people who loved them, you. The service will begin at 1:00 PM and immediately afterwards, those who want to walk to their final resting place are welcome to do so."
His post continues, "There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a...first come, first seated basis. There are no tickets, it is first come, first seated. There will be room for overflow in the huge lobby as well as the outside with screens to watch and hear the service."
Todd and his wife, actor Catherine Hickland, have been planning the special memorial together. If you can't attend and would like to honor Fisher and Reynolds, you're in luck. The public memorial will be streamed online. According to People, information about the livestream will be posted on Reynolds' official website.
It sounds like it will be a beautiful tribute, especially since James Blunt wrote a special song for his dear friend Fisher that he will debut at her memorial. Fisher was also the godmother to Blunt's son. "He wrote a beautiful song to Carrie that will be released on the day of the memorial; we’re going to premiere the song," Todd revealed (via Variety) Wednesday after a screening of Bright Lights (an HBO documentary about Reynolds and Fisher) at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival. He even said Blunt's song "might rip your heart out."
Todd explained that this public memorial is something his mom would've wanted. "The public is invited because that’s how my mother would want it. She was very connected to her fans and felt they were a part of her, so we’re opening it to the public."
Fisher and Reynolds will certainly never be forgotten.
