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.

    Unique, Beyond Perfect, A Dream Come True!

    If you are looking for a venue for your wedding day do yourself a favor and look into the Suffolk Theater. I married my husband here on 9/7/19 and that day was beyond perfect. One of the main reasons for the day's perfection was the staff at the Suffolk Theater. Kristen’s organized ingenuity made the day run seamlessly! During all the months planning our special day, the theater staff was the most accommodating, caring, attentive people and it was a pleasure working with them all. I had a vision for my wedding day and the production team brought it to life. We had around 200 guests attending and I know that at at least one point in the night we had everyone on the dance floor with no issues at all! This space lends itself so beautifully to a wedding of any size. Our guests complimented the production quality, the wait staff/bartenders and the food! OMG the food! Chef Noah absolutely blew us out of the water with his assorted cocktail hour menu, his dinner entrees and the pass around desserts. If I had to do the day all over again (and I wish I could!) I wouldn’t change a thing. Because of the Suffolk Theater, I was able to have my dream wedding.

    Amazing Experience

    We had the great fortune of getting married at the Suffolk Theater and I feel so lucky that we chose this gem of a venue. The space is stunning, the food was great and It cannot be overstated how wonderful the production team and staff are. Kristen, the director of events, went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was what we had envisioned. Leading up to the event we had wonderful communication with Kristen and the day of the wedding we felt looked after and cared for. It was apparent that Kristen truly wanted us to have a perfect day, and we did!

    Our wedding was the best (and most fun) day of our lives and we could not have asked for a better venue than the Suffolk Theater.
