The Five Flags Theater has a rich history entwined with Dubuque and the Tri-State Area. The building at 4th and Main was reconstructed as the Majestic Theater in 1910 after a fire destroyed the original structure. In the late 1960's, the theater was slated for demolition, but dodged the wrecking ball with the help of a group of dedicated Dubuque citizens who rallied to save the theater. Their action marked the beginning of the Dubuque Five Flags Center, a city block dedicated to enhancing the cultural experience of Dubuque.
The Five Flags Theater has undergone substantial restoration with new restrooms, a roomier balcony, restored seats, plaster repair and a complete repainting to the original colors. Special care was taken to preserve the historic Five Flags Theater with the expertise of the area's premier restoration professionals.
Five Flags Theater occupies a historic site which has been a landmark for public entertainment since 1840.

We used the historic theater in the Five Flags Center for our wedding ceremony venue on 09/12/2015. First of all, the theater is absolutely beautiful and was the perfect setting for our ceremony. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating with all of our wedding plans. We were able to decorate and perform a rehearsal the day before the ceremony. They also were able to provide us with space below the theater to get ready. The groomsmen and bridesmaids had separate spaces so I was able to "hide" from my fiance before the wedding! Everything went smoothly throughout the ceremony and it was gorgeous. I'm so happy we chose this venue for our ceremony.Sent on 11/22/2015

I loved this venue! Ali was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions. They were flexible with last minute time changes and everything ran so smoothly. The venue is gorgeous and the ballroom completely transforms. Reasonably priced. Spent $3,000 at most for this venue.Sent on 05/28/2018
