Corinthian Event Center was originally built in 1924 as a Scottish Rite Temple. After serving the Masonic Order for many years, it was converted into a movie theater. The movie screen still stands today at one end of their ballroom, and many couples choose to use it for a wedding slideshow. In 1982, it became the meeting place and event venue it is today. Their staff has over 20 years experience serving thousands of meals at this facility.

I had the wedding of my dreams here. Jennifer and Tina are the power houses and are amazing at what they do. I picked it solely on how I feel about the people when I first interviewed the site and I'm glad we went with our guts!Sent on 10/09/2019

Absolutely one of the best vendors I’ve ever worked with in San Jose. The attention to deathlike is amazing.
From the beginning to the end this organization has the history and the ability to deliver the results you want.Sent on 10/02/2019

Loved having our wedding reception here!
Staff was very responsive, supportive and understanding of all our needs. We didn’t live in San Jose (our parents did) so it was nice that they were so responsive otherwise during the planning process. Our guestlist was at about 300 and they were able to accommodate all the last minute changes we had to make. They allowed us to visit the site often and peak at how other parties decorated before their events to help us get ideas. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend.Sent on 10/03/2019
