By Desiree Murphy
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will be honored with a beautiful public memorial.
Family, friends and fans of the late mother-daughter duo, who died just one day apart last month, can attend the service, which is taking place March 25, 2017, at the Freedom Theater at Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, California.
Todd Fisher announced the news in a statement posted on his website on Friday.
"On Saturday, March 25th, there will be a public memorial for my mother, Debbie Reynolds, and my sister, Carrie Fisher, at Forrest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills at the Freedom Theater," he wrote. "We will be celebrating their lives with friends, family members, and the people who loved them, you."
"The service will begin at 1 p.m. and immediately afterwards, those who want to walk to their final resting place are welcome to do so," he continued. "There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a first come 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."
Carrie, best known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars, died at age 60 after going into cardiac arrest on a plane. Her mother, Debbie, died at age 84 as a result of a stroke, and was laid to rest earlier this month at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, where she was buried along with some of Carrie's ashes. The burial location is near the resting places of family friends Bette Davis and Liberace.
As ET previously reported, Carrie once spoke about what she wanted for her Oscars In Memoriam tribute. In an interview with Jimmy McInerney and Jason Swank for Rebel Force Radio podcast in 2010, she requested that Harrison Ford sing at the tribute.
