A private memorial commemorating the life of the late actress Elizabeth Taylor has been scheduled for Sunday on the Warner Brothers lot, a representative of her trust said Friday.
Taylor died in March of congestive heart failure. She was 79.
She was buried in a small, private funeral.
The Sunday memorial at the Stephen J. Ross Theater in Los Angeles is a private event and the press will not be allowed in, according to trust spokeswoman Jamie Cadwell.
Cadwell declined to say more about the event.
Taylor founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS foundation after the death of her friend and fellow actor Rock Hudson. She expended much of her money and time in the effort after her acting career began to wane in the 1980s.
