The Orpheum at Oxford
The Orpheum at Oxford is a wedding banquet hall located in Oxford, North Carolina. Boasting a rich history that dates back to the early 20th century, this former theater exudes a distinctive charm. A multi-level building, it has ample room for hosting all manner of festivities. Here, you can sink into the once-in-a-lifetime aura of your special day as you surround yourself with Gatsby-era decor and a high level of service.
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.

Everett’s entrepreneurial background led him to where he is today. With almost 10 years of sales experience ranging from the automotive industry all the way to SaaS, his love of getting to know people and talk to them and his appreciation of history, The Orpheum at Oxford presented itself as a great investment to him and his wife, Lauren. He grew up in Hillsborough, moving to Granville County in middle school and has called it home ever since. Everett’s dedication to the revitalization of downtown Oxford led he and his wife to purchase and operate several real estate investment properties, including an Airbnb, mixed use retail space on Hillsboro Street and others. In his free time, Everett likes to check out local real estate, cook, try new restaurants and hang out with Lauren’s and his pets at home. He is also a Chamber Ambassador for the Granville County Chamber of Commerce and serves on the Design & Commerce Committee for DOEDC.
His favorite thing about The Orpheum: “My favorite thing about The Orpheum is its rich history that is rooted in historic downtown Oxford. Thought to have been built in the early 1900s but returned to its former glory by the Crews family in 1942 and again in 2018, I’m proud that The Orpheum is a prominent landmark in our community.
Fun Fact: Everett has shown Tennessee walking horses all over the country and even has a few World Grand Champion titles in competitions.
An Oxford-native and sixth-generation Granville County resident, Lauren’s passion for growth in the area kept her here after graduating with a B.A. in Journalism and a specialization in graphic design from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After working in marketing and design for a few major North Carolina publications a couple of years after college, her passion to start her own design and branding agency with her husband became a reality So, in July of 2021, she took over the space that Coble Printing used to occupy and is the owner of Wilkinson Creative Co. in downtown Oxford, North Carolina. Wilkinson Creative Co. offers branding development, event marketing, custom invitation design and more to its long list of local clients, including The Orpheum of course. She enjoys spending time at home with her and Everett’s two cats, Celie and Layla, and their dachshund, Dolly. In her free time, she also loves to paint, try new restaurants and travel as much as possible. She also serves on the Advisory Council for the Boys and Girls Club of North Central North Carolina and is an active DOEDC volunteer alongside Everett.
Her favorite thing about The Orpheum: “I love that it can be a gathering place for so many kinds of people. The design nerd in me loves the architecture of the space as well!”
