ABOUT OUR SPACE
Monk Space was established in 2007 as a full service FILM PRODUCTION STAGE in the center of LA. Located on the edge of Koreatown, convenient to all freeways, we are an adaptive use space housed in 97 year-old brick warehouses with tons of character and history. When renting from us you have the option of booking ALL OR PART OF OUR BUILDING.
Whether shooting film, music videos, photo shoots, dance videos or interviews, we’ve got you covered. You can build your own sets or alter the rooms to fit your needs. There is ample room to set up wardrobe, makeup, craft services and holding areas. Combining both stages is perfect for shoots that need unlimited space. Our warehouses are completely light and sound isolated. We can also assist in further sound treating for the best quality audio. We can handle big studio productions, small indie shoots, or student filmmakers. All are welcomed, whether big or small!
Included in the rental is power, WIFI, track lighting, A/C, four fully stocked bathrooms, as well as a limited supply of tables and chairs. But Monk Space isn’t just about our building. It is about EXPRESSING YOUR VISION! Let us help you make it happen! We promise to make your booking a productive, hassle-free success! Call Michael to discuss your needs at 213.925.8562.
THE BUILDING WAS BUILT in 1922 and opened its doors as Hoffman's Cash and Carry Department Store. There is still an original, perfectly restored advertising billboard on our Lobby Wall. By the late 20s Hoffman's went out of business as the country plunged into the Great Depression. It soon reopened, off the grid, during Prohibition as a Speakeasy called the Horseshoe Club! It was rumored to be a hot spot for Swing Jazz, illegal booze and notorius characters of the 1930s. If only the walls could talk! When we took over the building we did our upmost to restore the warehouses back to their original walls and floors to what you see today!
