Tucked away in the heart of Beverly Hills, Greystone Mansion is one of L.A.'s best kept secrets. Once owned by the Doheny family, the estate now serves as a movie location, building on its rich cinematic history. The site invites visitors to explore its tranquil grounds, just minutes away from the buzz of the city.

With the Academy Awards just days away, film enthusiasts are encouraged to soak up the fun with a few unique and free exhibitions. At the home base of the Oscars, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, visitors can take a peek into the extraordinary life of Douglas Fairbanks, Hollywood's first heartthrob. In the same building, Federico Fellini fans can get a firsthand look at notebooks filled with writings and artwork that documented the dreams of one of cinema's most celebrated directors. And just across town, at the FIDM Museum & Galleries, movie-lovers can see more than 125 costumes up close and personal, including pieces from several Oscar-nominated films.
