I recently attended the SCALE 14x conference at this location, and I have to say; this is one of the nicest and most flexible venues I have ever experienced. They have rooms ranging from small classrooms to one of the largest ballrooms I have ever seen. In addition, the Sheraton hotel is part of the same complex and the Paseo... More

Big auditorium with comfortable seats and good views of the stage from all of them. Easy access and egress with lot of isles. Parking is ridiculous in the Sheraton next door at $12 for even an hour. Walk a couple of blocks and spend the $12 on what makes you happy.

It has many different spaces that accomodate everything from trade shows, conventions, and small conferences to concerts and performing arts events. The day we were there the venue had an enclosed tent with an ice rink. The site also has a Sheraton Hotel and is close to... More

Was there for a convention but spent most mornings just admiring the beauty of the building and surrounding area. A quiet place to sit and just watch the world go by was just as enjoyable as what was happening inside. Starbucks on the corner, grab a cup of whatever pleases you and just soak up the beauty around you,

Hi Sherri, thanks for the wonderful review, next time we'll have to open The Civic for you to spend time inside and admire the hand-painted ceilings and beautiful architectural details. Which convention were you here for? Hopefully this trip has inspired you to come back to Pasadena for a leisure visit. Enjoy the holidays! More

I went for a convention and I was very impressed. It is beautiful outside and well-maintained inside. Across the street there are many places to eat and shop during breaks in the schedule. I parked at the hotel behind it for $10 for the whole day. The staff were very friendly and the Starbucks inside was convenient as well. I... More

The building is beautiful on the outside and equally beautiful on the inside. I've been here for everything from ballet performances, to theater plays, to who-knows-what and I love coming here. It's one of those old yet renovated buildings that gives Pasadena the flavor that it has!

I visit here every month because every week they have exciting events. Sometime they have free admission and free passes for public for certain events.

I was here for work. The facility is centrally located and clean. Parking is expensive....maybe park else where and walk if you are able bodied and healthy
