    A Beautiful Venue + A Great Experience!

    The Gem Theatre is such a unique event space! From the moment you set foot in the front courtyard to seeing the historic theatre, you just know that your guests will enjoy seeing something beautiful around every corner. The best perk with a beautiful venue is that you don't need a ton of decor...the architecture does it for you!

    The sales team was so helpful throughout the planning process making sure that our questions were answered and that we were taken care of every step of the way. It really relieved a lot of stress knowing that we had such a great vendor team there to help!

    Gem Theatre's reply:

    Thank you Jennifer for the kind words! We look forward to the opportunity to host another event with you again the future!

    The night of our life at The Gem

    I'm not sure where to even begin. The Gem Theatre and its staff were an absolute dream to work with. My husband and I wanted a venue that was unique but would still offer some hand-holding during the planning. The Gem was all of this and more. Samantha fielded a couple dozen emails from us and was always so incredibly helpful and responsive. Clara was our day-of coordinator and I can't thank her enough for all of her guidance on our big day. We received so many compliments from our guests saying what a beautiful venue it was and how delicious (and hot! can you believe it?) the food tasted. I absolutely loved our wedding and that's due in very large part to all of the incredible people at The Gem.

The historic Gem Theatre is a gorgeous venue for any special event. The Spanish Revival and Arts & Crafts architecture and warm hand painted dining rooms make it a unique setting for those looking for historic elegance. We've always been impressed by the staff and consider it a great day when we get to perform in the historic Gem.

The Gem Theatre ( Century Theatre and Colony Club) are all amazing venues! Each has its own special ambience. Besides the amazing architecture and theatrical options, the staff is awesome and the food is top notch! I have been to many events at the Gem, Century and Colony and have always been impressed. Whether I was serving as a floral provider, an officiant or just a guest, it has always been pleasurable! I highly recommend them.
