Anaheim Convention Center Arena


Across the street from Disneyland sits one of our favorite buildings – the Anaheim Convention Center Arena.

Opened in July 1967, the domed building’s elliptical floor plan provided for up to 9,100-seats for performances (6,500 for circus or ice show, 7,800 for basketball, 8,500 for stage performance and 9,100 for boxing). Visible under a layer of concrete are the 200-ton steel arches that peak at 112 feet above arena floor.
