Making it Big: The Olympic Auditorium Project
Thanks to One Room with a View for its coverage of the Olympic Auditorium Project.
“Located at 1801 South Grand Avenue, the Olympic Auditorium opened in 1924. It had it all. Sex, mobsters, boxing, punk rock, wrestling, roller derby and more. The Olympic was synonymous with action and intensity. Taking a line from 21 Jump Street, the arena was purchased in June 2005 by the Korean-American church, The Glory Church of Jesus Christ. The venue, therefore, is no more. For our latest Making It Big, we’re looking at a documentary aiming to recall this hallowed arena’s glory years. Welcome to The Olympic Auditorium Project.”
