The Forum was designed by Charles Luckman and built in 1967. The round building served as an arena for sports and concerts. In 2000, the building was acquired by the Faithful Central Bible Church. It continued to be used for live performances. In 2012, the Madison Square Garden Company bought the building. After refurbishing, The Forum reopened in 2014 featuring sports and concerts.

former CLIC Photo
Joshua Tree, CA
I believe this structure in Joshua Tree originally housed a CLIC Photo. It appears to be from the 1960s or 1970s. There is an identical booth like this one in Sandell, TX. There was another one of these booths in Clovis, NM which might indicate that these booths were all over the Southwest. However, this structures are so small and light that they could easily be transported anywhere. This booth was previously located in Yucca Valley, CA. The previous owner said there were lots of these booths around Southern California. Around 2006, the owner of Art Queen purchased the booth and moved it to the back of the property. It was later painted lime green and now houses the Crochet Museum. It had previously been painted brown and beige. [map]
