Long Beach

Lectures begin at 8:00 pm

We are thrilled to enter our 2nd year at our newest Distinguished Speaker Series location in the “Center” of Southern California…the Long Beach Terrace Theater, an urban waterfront destination that overlooks the bustling Rainbow Harbor, Queensway Bay and miles of sandy Pacific Ocean beachfront. The Terrace Theater is a modern and stylish facility located in the heart of Long Beach’s downtown waterfront. The Terrace welcomes thousands of visitors every year and is one of the first green arenas in the U.S. This facility has 5,800 solar panels atop 400,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The Theater is surrounded by many culinary pockets, including Broadway and W. 3rd Street. Before attending a #SpeakersLA night, we recommend dining or drinking at a local favorite like District Wine, Portuguese Bend Distillery, Padre, or RISÜ.
