San Diego State University’s on-campus amphitheater will change its name to Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theater starting Jan. 1, 2014.
The name change is part of a 10-year agreement between the university and the California Coast Credit Union and will coincide with improvements to the theater, including a new stage roof, concourse expansion and renovations to seating and restrooms.
“The credit union has a long legacy of serving the educational community and was founded by local teachers, so we are excited to partner with them to help serve the financial needs of our students, faculty and staff and to add to the success of the Open Air Theatre into the future,” said Tom McCarron, SDSU’s Vice President of Business and Financial Affairs.
California Coast will also open a branch and ATM along the courtyard within the Aztec Student Union, which is scheduled to open in January.
Opened in 1941, the theater is one of the area’s longest running outdoor venues.
