About

On WeddingWire since 2016

Just a 15-minute drive from downtown Kansas City, The Mission Theatre sets the scene for a playful contrast of old and new. Built in 1938, The Theatre's original architecture boasts a classic 1930's vibe that has been paired with elegant decor creating a modern twist. The Mission Theatre comfortably accommodates up to 250 guests seated. Renovated from floor to ceiling in 2017, The Mission Theatre's crystal chandeliers, polished concrete floors, elaborate accent walls, and custom marquee, will charm and captivate your guests.

Facilities and Capacity

  • The Main Ballroom: The Main Ballroom is luxuriously decorated with crystal chandeliers to give a nod to the vintage style of the venue.
  • The Lobby: The Theatre has an elegantly embellished lobby that leads guests to the entrance of the Main Ballroom.
  • The Bridal Suite + The Groom's Room: Secluded from the wedding on a completely different floor, the Bridal Suite and Groom’s Room are extra spacious and have their own space on the second floor. They overlook the Main Ballroom so the wedding party can sneak a peek at the wedding while they get ready. The suites features all of the necessities to make your getting ready process as stress-free as possible.
  • The Alley: A photo opportunity that you won't want to miss! On the side of our building is a long alleyway that's adorned with string lights and paves the way for intimate photos as newlyweds or even a first look!
  • The 3,500-square-foot Mission Theatre is perfectly suited for your and your guests to celebrate your special day, accommodating up to 250 guests seated, or 400 guests standing.

What dreams are made of!

Alexis and the Mission Theatre team are outstanding to work with. Alexis is VERY knowledgeable with event flow/layout and as an event planner myself, I was extremely appreciative of her attention to detail and responsiveness. The venue itself is like a palace for a princess. Every detail was clearly thought out and executed to perfection (SO many photo opportunities from the beautifully lights strung in the alleyway to the absolutely gorgeous wallpaper throughout - even in the bathrooms!!). You will have the BEST DAY EVER having a wedding here.

Class Banquet

Sena was simply amazing. She communicated throughout the process. It can be difficult to plan big events but she made it easy. Her response time via email was less than 24 hours, and she always answered every question and was very honest. Sena was also available via phone. Please book with her, you won't regret it.
