Title supplied by cataloger. Aerial view of the Long Beach waterfront looking southeast, including the Municipal Auditorium, Rainbow Pier, and Breakers Hotel (directly behind the auditorium, it is the tall building with the cupola tower at one end). The 8,000-seat Long Beach Municipal Auditorium was built in 1931 at the foot of Long Beach Boulevard and extends 500 feet out into the Pacific Ocean. It is surrounded on three sides by a lagoon; the half-circular Rainbow Pier, which is open to the public, arches from Pine Ave. to Linden Ave. surrounding the auditorium and lagoon. In 1975 demolition began on the Municipal Auditorium and bandstand area to make way for the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. To the left of the auditorium, every single square inch of the city is riddled with commercial and housing areas as far as the eye can see.
