History

The Suffolk Theater was originally built in 1933 and was restored in 2013. In the last five years, the theater has been transformed into an Art Deco cinema space that has a full-service performing arts center. Because of its state-of-the-art marquee and history, the theater is part of the identity of Main Street. When it first opened on December 30, 1933, more than 2,000 people attended the opening night and hailed its luxury and design. During World War II, the theater was used as an agent for issuing war bonds. The theater closed in 1987 and was purchased in 2005 by Dianne and Bob Castaldi. The Castaldi’s wanted to make the location a performing arts center. It reopened in September 2011 with new lighting and an animated marquee.

    My daughter had the privilege of getting married at this outstanding venue. From the moment we walked in to meet Nicole Evers, the event coordinator, the entire experience could not have been better. Nicole was supremely professional, flexible, willing to accomodate the ideas of my daughter and son-in-law, available to patiently answer each and every question, provided many of her own outstanding suggestions, ran the event flawlessly, and just made the entire event unforgettable. The venue itself was spectacular and I can't tell you how many people told me it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I cannot recommend Ms. Evers and this venue more strongly. It was magical.

    I had my wedding at the Suffolk theater this past Saturday. From the second we walked into this beautiful venue last year we knew it was the one for us. We wanted something different then your run of the mill catering hall, but we also didn't want the responsibility of transforming a totally diy space. The Suffolk theater gave us the best of both worlds. We were able to work with their amazing production team (shout out to Chip and Clutch!) to add personal details that we came up with, but still had the comfort of knowing every wedding detail was being taken care of by the staff. Speaking of the production team, I cannot say enough about their abilities and creativity. From the sound they got out of the band, the lighting, the videos they put together for the projection screen, just EVERYTHING! They are so professional and you can rest easy knowing your day is in great hands (let them use their creativity and have fun, I promise you won't be disappointed). The venue in itself was so unique and every guest was blown away the entire evening. It was amazing to see people just walking around and exploring every detail. And last but absolutely not least, the event coordinator Nicole Evers is an absolute gem. I don't even think gem is a strong enough word for what she brings to this venue. She helped us from day one create a day neither of us would forget. She meticulously planned out our entire day and not a detail was left out. She was a calming presence throughout the whole experience and process and encouraged us to be ourselves and express our creativity. She helped us come up with ideas that both complimented the space and its history, as well as our story. I would honestly get married in a dump if I knew she was the event coordinator there. I feel so lucky to be able to call her a friend after all of this! If you want to have an amazing wedding put your trust into this team of people. They will not let you down.
