About

Monk Space was established in 2007 as a full service FILM PRODUCTION STAGE and EVENT VENUE in the center of LA.  Located on the edge of Koreatown, convenient to all freeways, we are an adaptive use space housed in a 95 year-old brick building with tons of character and history. When renting from us you have the option of booking one of two stages, or book all access to the entire ground floor facility.  STAGE ONE, our warehouse, has distressed brick walls, concrete floors, a skylight, two shuttered windows, tall ceilings and load in through a pedestrian alley from the street and includes adjacent production rooms.

 

Included in the rental is power, WIFI, track lighting, A/C, four fully stocked bathrooms, makeup stations, as well as limited supply of tables and chairs. In-house we also provide the following for rental:

  • Event Lighting (Uplighting, Wash Lighting, Intelligent Lighting, Pin-Spots, Dance Lighting)
