The first Long Beach Municipal Auditorium was built in 1905 on the east side of the municipal pier at Seaside and Pine Ave. for a capacity crowd of 6000. A wooden-frame construction with supporting pillars, the upper deck collapsed on May 15, 1913, during the "British Empire Day" celebration. The auditorium was replaced in 1932 by the second Long Beach Municipal Auditorium.
Beachgoers lounge on the sand under beach umbrellas next to the Long Beach municipal pier and auditorium. The Auditorium appears to still be under construction.
