Santa Monica

Councilmember Kevin McKeown


Our historic Santa Monica Civic Auditorium will again become

a vibrant cultural icon, hosting concerts and stage shows.  A surprisingly divisive two-night debate ended in a four-to-three vote to renovate the Civic with available redevelopment funds.

Many Santa Monicans recall the Civic from its glory days of Hollywood’s Academy Awards and many great rock ‘n’ roll concerts, including the 1964 TAMI show.  With a fully funded restoration of our Civic Auditorium, we can look forward to years of glory days yet to come.
