“SAVE THE PIER!” Play on the Santa Monica Pier
This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.
Join Santa Monica Pier in experiencing a live reenactment of the events that followed when two groups of passionate citizens in the 1970s worked to save the Pier from the Santa Monica City Council’s plan to build a 35-acre artificial island in the bay with a bridge connecting it to the Santa Monica freeway. After the new construction was complete, the Pier would be torn down. The Save the Pier Play will recount this 1972 grassroots fight to stop the demolition of The Santa Monica Pier.
