L.A. Times report: X-rated film shot on field of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 2001

An investigation by the Los Angeles Times has uncovered that in 2001, a pornographic film company gained access to the field of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Times points out is the legendary locale “where the USC Trojans play football, two Summer Olympics were staged, John F. Kennedy accepted the Democratic presidential nomination and Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass,” spent an evening shooting an adult film. Bow-chicka-bow-wow.

The film, shot in 2001 and released in 2002 and entitled, The Gangbang Girl #32 (my guess is you don’t need to see the first 31 movies in the series to figure out the plot), involved scenes amounting to 40 minutes of hardcore, group sex played out upon the field’s playing surface. And while the Times’ report goes into extensive detail regarding exactly what transpired, it nevertheless remains unclear how filmmakers gained access to the stadium.

Some details from the fascinating, extensive and stupefying report:

The filming at the taxpayer-owned stadium was done at night, with the Coliseum’s towering lights blazing and its rows of distinctive red and white seats framing many of the scenes. The video also shows the stadium’s signature tunnel, which the Trojan team charges through at the start of games, as well as a sliver of the iconic peristyle, the arched entrance to the Coliseum.

“I was just in awe that we were at the Coliseum,” said a star of the film, who goes by the name Mr. Marcus. “I’ve made movies for about 20 years and I’ve done a lot of things, but that one really stands out.… I mean, who gets to have sex on the Coliseum floor?”

Marcus said the football-themed footage was shot on a single night, including some non-explicit scenes filmed in a Coliseum locker room that did not make the final cut. The Coliseum is not identified by name in the video, which was made in 2001 and released in 2002. About half of the 90-minute movie was filmed elsewhere.

Marcus said the cast and crew were at the Coliseum until about 11:00 p.m. and to this day cannot believe how they accomplished such a remarkable event: “Honestly, when I started to shoot there, I thought, ‘How the hell did we pull this off? And does everyone know about it?’

Mr. Marcus added that he has no regrets if people think shooting a porno flick had sullied the pristine image of such hallowed grounds, saying to such naysayers, “You can be mad all you want, but it was one of those once-in-a-lifetime types of opportunities.”
