Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pasadena, CA
This tour has sold out. But we've added a 1:00pm tour on the same date. Get tickets here.
On Saturday, April 29th, My Valley Pass is proud present our first ever Pasadena Walking Film Tour.
On this offshoot of our popular Pasadena (bus) Film Tour, join My Valley Pass co-founder Jared Cowan for a jaunt through Old Pasadena and the Pasadena Civic Center, and learn about a number of the popular movies and TV shows that have used this visually dynamic and historic area as a filming location. We'll even visit a few locations where a tour bus can't go, including - by way of the gracious support of Visit Pasadena - the grand interior of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
Space is limited, so get your tickets today!
