Pasadena

Lectures begin at 7:30 pm

We’re proud to enter our 28th season in the Pasadena community! Our Pasadena Distinguished Speaker Series evenings are held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.┬áThe historic Mediterranean Revival architecture inspired Pasadena Civic Auditorium opened in 1932 and is one of the most revered performance halls in the nation. A treasure of Los Angeles’s arts and culture scene, the historic 3,000-seat Pasadena Civic Auditorium presents a proud tradition of excellence and timeless grace. Before attending a #SpeakersLA night, we recommend dining at a local favorite like Smitty’s Grill, The Parkway Grill, Arroyo Chop House, Tokyo Wako, Lunasia Dim Sum House, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and Mi Piace.
