About The Civic Auditorium
Located at 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica, California, the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium was built in 1958 as a fully functional multi-purpose conference and convention venue. Santa Monica is a location steep in history with lots of charming hotels, beautiful beaches, historical sites, and a variety of tasty continental cuisine.
What is unique about the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium is that the building designer and architect, Welton Becket designed a reinforced concrete structure that incorporates features of an amphitheater with that of a vintage auditorium for conventions and trade show events. A lot of detail was put into the creation of this auditorium.
