Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard delivered his annual State of the City address on Thursday, and the venue was the newish ArcLight Cinemas at the Paseo Colorado.
The theater marquee, seen above, displayed the special engagement alongside its regular movie showtimes.
The tone of the speech was largely sober, as Bogaard described the serious fiscal challenges facing the city. Budget constrictions have already forced city layoffs, and employee pay cuts are a likely next step.
Bogaard also touched on the $152 million Rose Bowl renovation and the city’s 125th anniversary.
