The Forum previously was called the Great Western Forum and also as the LA Forum. The forum is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Inglewood, California, a city adjacent to Los Angeles. Located between West Manchester Boulevard, to the north of the old Hollywood Park Racetrack and casino (it has been torn down), it is located about 3 miles east of the Los Angeles International Airport.
It is a prominent feature on the landing approach to the airport from the east. Along with Madison Square Garden, it was one of the most well-known indoor sports venues in the U.S. during its time operating as a major venue. The Forum achieved its greatest fame as the home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, from 1967 to 1999, when the teams moved to the new Staples Center. The building was also the home of the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks, from 1997, until they also moved to the Staples Center in 2001.
The arena was the site of the 1972 and 1983 NBA All-Star Games, the 1981 NHL All-Star Game, Basketball at the 1984 Summer Olympics and hosted the Big West Conference men’s basketball tournament from 1983 to 1988 and the 1989 Pacific-10 Conference men’s basketball tournament. In 2000, it was acquired by the Faithful Central Bible Church, which used it for occasional church services, while also leasing the building for sporting events, concerts and other events. In 2012, the Forum was purchased by The Madison Square Garden Company, owners of New York’s Madison Square Garden, for $23.5 million; MSG announced plans to renovate the arena for use as a “world-class” concert venue.
