The Forum (Inglewood, California)
The Forum is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Inglewood, United States, adjacent to Los Angeles. Located between West Manchester Boulevard, across Pincay Drive and Kareem Court, it is north of the under-construction Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park and the new Hollywood Park Casino, it is about three miles east of Los Angeles International Airport. Opening on December 30, 1967, the Forum was an groundbreaking structure. Architect Charles Luckman's vision was brought to life by engineers Carl Johnson and Svend Nielsen, who were able to engineer the structure so that it had no major support pillars; this had been unheard of in an indoor arena the size of the Forum. The arena is visible on the landing approach to the LAX from the east. With Madison Square Garden, it was once one of the best-known indoor sports venues in the U. S; the Forum achieved its greatest fame as home to the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League from 1967 to 1999, when the teams moved to Staples Center to join the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Forum was the home of the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks from 1997 to their 2001 move to Staples Center. The Forum was the site of the 1972 and 1983 NBA All-Star Games, the 1981 NHL All-Star Game, 1984 Olympic basketball and hosted the Big West Conference and the 1989 Pacific-10 Conference men's basketball tournaments, it was acquired in 2000 by the Faithful Central Bible Church, which used it for occasional church services and leased it for sporting events and other events. In 2012, the Forum was purchased by the Madison Square Garden Company, owners of New York City's Madison Square Garden, for $23.5 million. On September 24, 2014, the Forum was listed on the National Register of Historic Places; the arena is formally known as The Forum Presented by Chase, has been known as the Great Western Forum and nicknamed the "Fabulous Forum" in a newspaper headline. It is known informally as the L. A. Forum. On the site of a former golf course, the "fabulous" Forum was built in 1967 by Jack Kent Cooke.
The Canadian Cooke, who enjoyed ice hockey, was determined to bring the NHL to Los Angeles. In 1966, the league announced that it was selling six new franchises, Cooke prepared a bid; the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, which operated the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, supported a competing bid headed by Los Angeles Rams owner Dan Reeves—who had a hockey team at the Arena, the Western Hockey League's Los Angeles Blades—and told Cooke that if he won the franchise, he would not be allowed to use the facility. In response, Cooke planned to build a new arena in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood. Nearly 30 years Cooke told Los Angeles Times sportswriter Steve Springer that he remembered "one official representing the commission laughing at him" when Cooke said he would build in Inglewood. Cooke won the franchise. According to Springer, "Cooke built the Forum. Goodbye, Lakers. Goodbye, Kings."The round, $16 million building was designed by Los Angeles architect Charles Luckman to evoke the Roman Forum.
The arena seats 16,005 for hockey and up to 18,000 for musical concerts. More than 70% of the seats are between the goals, no seat is more than 170 feet from the playing surface. Steve Ballmer, who owns the Los Angeles Clippers, is looking to build a new arena blocks away from The Forum; the arena would compete directly with The Forum in regard to other large scale events. The Clippers' current lease at the Staples Center expires in 2024, Ballmer is hoping that the team can have its own basketball-specific arena. Several lawsuits were filed to attempt to prevent the construction of the competing arena. In December 2018, the Clippers filed a countersuit against The Madison Square Garden Company alleging that the company is trying to prevent competition. In March 2019, leaked emails revealed that Irving Azoff attempted to lure the Los Angeles Lakers back to The Forum after their lease at the Staples Center was up. Despite nothing coming of the proposal, Azoff's proposal to re-purpose The Forum was seen as a way of preventing the LA Clippers from building their own arena in Inglewood and ensuring that the Madison Square Garden Company got an unfair advantage over rival AEG, which owns part of the Lakers.
The Forum became a landmark in greater Los Angeles due to the Lakers' success and the Hollywood celebrities seen there. It hosted music concerts, boxing matches and U. S. political events. The arena is sometimes called the "Los Angeles Forum" or the "L. A. Forum" to distinguish it from other places with the name "Forum". Cream played two shows during the band's farewell tour, on October 18–19, 1968, with Deep Purple the opening act; the band's show of October 19 produced the live tracks on their farewell LP, Goodbye. Deep Purple recorded their part of the show, released as a live album entitled Inglewood – Live in California; the Rolling Stones performed at the Forum during their 1972 and 1975 North American tours. Steppenwolf played there during their At Your Birthday Party tour on July 14, 1969, with Three Dog Night the opening act. Three Dog Night recorded their set, released as a live album entitled Captured Live at the Forum. Between 1970 and 1977 Led Zeppelin perfo

In the Eastern European country of Sokovia, the Avengers—Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton—raid a Hydra facility commanded by Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, experimenting on humans using the scepter wielded by Loki.
They encounter two of Strucker's test subjects—twins Pietro Maximoff, who has superhuman speed, Wanda Maximoff, who has telepathic and telekinetic abilities—and apprehend Strucker, while Stark retrieves Loki's scepter. Stark and Banner discover an artificial intelligence within the scepter's gem, secretly decide to use it to complete Stark's "Ultron" global defense program; the unexpectedly sentient Ultron, believing he must eradicate humanity to save Earth, eliminates Stark's A. I. J. A. R. V. I. S. and attacks the Avengers at their headquarters. Escaping with the scepter, Ultron uses the resources in Strucker's Sokovia base to upgrade his rudimentary body and build an army of robot drones. Having killed Strucker, he recruits the Maximoffs, who hold Stark responsible for their parents' deaths by his company's weapons, goes to the base of arms dealer Ulysses Klaue in Johannesburg to obtain Wakandan vibranium; the Avengers attack Ultron and the Maximoffs, but Wanda subdues them with haunting visions, causing Banner to turn into the Hulk and rampage until Stark stops him with his anti-Hulk armor.
A worldwide backlash over the resulting destruction, the fears Wanda's hallucinations incited, send the team into hiding at a safe house. Thor departs to consult with Dr. Erik Selvig on the apocalyptic future he saw in his hallucination, while Nick Fury arrives and encourages the team to form a plan to stop Ultron. In Seoul, Ultron uses Loki's scepter to enslave the team's friend Dr. Helen Cho, they use her synthetic-tissue technology and the scepter's gem to craft a new body. As Ultron uploads himself into the body, Wanda is able to read his mind. Rogers and Barton find Ultron and retrieve the synthetic body, but Ultron captures Romanoff; the Avengers fight amongst themselves when Stark secretly uploads J. A. R. V. I. S.—who is still operational after hiding from Ultron inside the Internet—into the synthetic body. Thor returns to help activate the body, explaining that the gem on its brow—one of the six Infinity Stones, the most powerful objects in existence—was part of his vision; this "Vision" and the Maximoffs accompany the Avengers to Sokovia, where Ultron has used the remaining vibranium to build a machine to lift a large part of the capital city skyward, intending to crash it into the ground to cause global extinction.
Banner rescues Romanoff. The Avengers fight Ultron's army while Fury arrives in a Helicarrier with Maria Hill, James Rhodes and S. H. I. E. L. D. Agents to evacuate civilians. Pietro dies when he shields Barton from gunfire, a vengeful Wanda abandons her post to destroy Ultron's primary body, which allows one of his drones to activate the machine; the city plummets. In the aftermath, the Hulk, unwilling to endanger Romanoff by being with her, departs in a Quinjet, while the Vision confronts and destroys Ultron's last remaining body.
