I have nothing bad to say about our venue. When my husband and I firsts started looking for places to hold our ceremony and reception we knew we wanted something different. The Gem was exactly the place we were looking for. The building is absolutely stunning! Working with the even staff was a breeze. If I emailed them or called with questions, they answered me right away and were extremely helpful. Their wedding packages were just that...a package, and it made everything so easy. They weren't trying to nickle and dime you for every add on or change like some other venues we were originally looking at.Sent on 10/06/2014
We held our ceremony in the upstairs theater which is very romantic and cozy, the cocktail hour was outside on the beautifully landscaped patio, and we had our reception in the main theater with the head table on the stage. I received so many compliments on how different and cool our wedding venue was. The food was amazing and with huge portions I couldn't eat all of it (get the prime rib, it was our favorite). The servers, bartenders, door host, and the event manager were so great to work with. I was extremely impressed with how smoothly everything went at our wedding and I was actually able to relax and enjoy our night. If I could do our wedding over again, I wouldn't change a thing, especially our venue choice. I recommend the Gem Theatre to soon-to-be married couples. They were so wonderful to work with.

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.Sent on 01/21/2019

Amazing experience. Both Lauren and Molly did a great job coordinating and setting up our venue. They were extremely helpful. It was exactly what I pictured for our 1920s Art Deco theme!Sent on 08/19/2016

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.
