    The theater was a unique place to hold a wedding reception. They have an excellent sound system which ended up being great for dancing. During the six months we were engaged, there were three different wedding coordinators so contacting them was difficult. While it was a fun location, it was (what I felt) was pricey for what we got. A couple things that were in our contract that they were supposed to include were not included. In addition, having a reception here was a lot of work (which I knew going in), they have no kitchen so a caterer has to have everything prepared and ready, they do not own their own linens, and do not provide cleanup. Overall, we enjoyed it, but be aware that it will be a lot of work.
