Facilities and Capacity

You can begin your day in the Paola Community Center’s legendary green room, the Gilman room. This space would have been used by actors and actresses preparing for their stage debuts in the past. A large baroque-style mirror is situated between the room’s generously sized windows, allowing for all the natural light needed for you to ensure that you look your best. The charming vintage vanity can also be used by your makeup artists in your get-ready process, allowing you to feel like a star ready to emerge. For a truly breathtaking celebration of your union, consider using the Schwartz Family Theater for your ceremony. This immaculately preserved arena features dark oak seating, dramatic pillars, and art deco-inspired chandeliers overhead. The theater has a capacity of up to 299 guests, allowing ample space for your loved ones to watch you exchange your vows. The International room can be prepared to host your reception. This function room is bright and spacious, with direct access to the building’s kitchen. Your wedding meal can be served with ease and swiftness as you relax and enjoy the festivities with your loved ones.

Services Offered

You are invited to make the Paola Community Center your very own on your special day. Its hallowed interiors also provide an ideal blank canvas for your chosen decor.

    Unique & Beautiful

    We chose this venue for its unique stage setting, as my now husband is a musician. The setting was already beautiful, and easy to decorate with only a few additions. There are also lots of gorgeous photo locations. If we had it to do all over again, we would still choose the Paola Community Center!
