Named after the nearby Olympic Boulevard, the Olympic Plant was built at a cost of $230 million and began operating in June 1990. Each of the Olympic Plant's presses is capable of printing a 96-page newspaper -- with 36 pages of full color and four pages of spot color -- at speeds of up to 70,000 newspapers per hour. The press-room is nearly twice the length of a regulation football field.
Free parking when you enter 2000 E 8th Street near 8th and Alameda.
Photography allowed. Soft-soled shoes recommended for slippery floors. This trip can be combined with the LA Times Building Editorial Tour at 11am, followed by lunch at the LA Times Cafeteria and then the Olympic Plant Tour at 1:30pm, but you must register separately and lunch is at your expense.
Please note that the Editorial Building Tour can only accommodate 30 guests but the Olympic Printing Plant can accommodate 50. First come-first served!
