Patrons departing from the main entrance of the Pan-Pacific Auditorium following an evening performance. The building's green and white western-facing 228 foot long facade shown here features four stylized towers and flagpoles meant to represent upswept aircraft fins above the entrance. Designed by architects Wurdemann & Becket, it was one of America's finest examples of Streamline Moderne architecture.

After years of neglect and failed attempts at restoration, the structure was destroyed by fire in 1989. Pan Pacific Park is now located at this site
