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 love the old world charm of this place. From the outside with the tall roman columns to the inside high cathedral like ceiling. We recently held our wedding at this venue, and their coordinator Jennifer was amazing to work with. She was very cooperative, responsive and helpful. Any questions we had was answered promptly and professionally. Their available menu was great but the chef was very willing to work with our taste and request. The vendors that they work with are equally amazing. So please dont forget to ask Jennifer for her recommended list of vendors.Sent on 05/26/2015
Pricing was decent, not the cheapest out there but also not the most expensive. Make sure you contact them early! and come for a walk through. We had the run of the top two floors and it's huge there!. Open bar is always a plus but that's only if you have it in your budget! Our guest definitely made use of the feature though :)
