Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2033
Significance: Essentially this building is a shed with an image-imparting entrance facade. The Pan Pacific Auditorium achieves not just the styling of the great streamlined World's Fairs of the 1930's, but their festivity and sophistication as well. The four exuberant entrance pylons are carefully scaled to give the building an impressiveness far beyond its actual size. The entrance faces west toward the parking lot; an impressive view (advertising the building) of the pylons occurs from Beverly Blvd.
