MAMMOUTH FUN CITY - 1906

This followed the Military Tournament and the only information available is that a Band of Moki Indians were popular performers.

With the craze in roller skating becoming increasingly popular, the arena was turned into a skating rink and was patronised by thousands over the next few years. In 1911, Cochran staged the first of his big boxing matches and in the same year, on Christmas Eve, he staged "The Miracle". For the spectacle by Professor Max Reinhardt, Olympia was transformed into a copy of Cologne cathedral. This was the story of a nun, whose life was one of joys and sorrows. The play was produced in two acts, with the intermezzo of seven episodes.
