Facilities and Capacity
With three separate areas, you and your guests can enjoy the aura of this setting. On approach, the facade is sure to catch your eye with its neon sign. Inside, there are multiple get-ready rooms for you and your select wedding party members to avail of as outfits are tried on. The Projection Suite boasts picturesque views of the urban landscape and offers a secluded laid-back space for certain people to lounge with a few games of poker. The main function room has a spacious layout that would certainly be ideal for reception drinks. The bar means that all your invitees can treat themselves to a few beverages in anticipation of the late-night partying.
On the Mezzanine floor, there is extra room for people to gather. This area also has a suitable setup for a disc-spinner to arrange their equipment as they entertain the crowd from an elevated position. Throughout, The Orpheum at Oxford is defined by throwbacks to the past. Although it has been revitalized and refined since it was originally opened, it still retains much of its initial charm and era-specific design. What’s more, owing to the venue’s connection with The Oaks at Oxford, an open-air ceremony site can be made available. This would be ideal for those who would like to tie the knot nearby before making their way toward The Orpheum.
The Orpheum at Oxford’s wedding package includes tables and chairs for approximately 150 guests. Various other aspects of the venue can be personalized, including bespoke wedding movie posters. An event planner can assist with certain features, thereby minimizing the stress of the occasion. Event enhancements such as an arch, dance floor, lighting, and tableware may be furnished. Bar options, vendor referrals, and accommodation through local partners can also be provided.
This building was first constructed in 1912, and it operated for nearly 30 years as a cinema. Live performances also regularly took place here until it began life as a commercial space before being left idle. In 2018, Britnye and Cody Shore took on the project, and today The Orpheum at Oxford plays host to weddings - perhaps yours could be the next blockbuster romance it features.
