Blue Pyramid

The basketball scene in Adam Sandler's movie, Little Nicky

was filmed here in a time span of three days. I was an extra for the 2nd day of filming.

Suburban Pyramid

It's hard to be anywhere near Long Beach and not notice a blue glass point on the horizon. Located on Cal State Long Beach's campus lies one of only three true pyramids in the US. The Walter Pyramid, formerly the Long Beach Pyramid, rises 18 stories and measures 345 ft. on each side. Made of beautiful blue glass, it's quite a sight to see. Home to Long Beach State's Basketball and volleyball teams, it also hosts multiple events throughout the year.
