    Wedding ceremony

    Heather was amazing to work with. She answered all of our questions promptly and was very professional. The venue was perfect for our wedding ceremony. So many guests said they loved the theater and I am very happy we decided to have our ceremony here.

    Great Venue in downtown Muskegon

    I had my wedding reception September 2019 on the third floor in the ballroom. Everything was amazing and went as planned. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the event coordinator did a great job! I had about 110 guests and we had half of the ballroom, and it was just the right amount of space. I would definitely recommend this venue.
