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.

Absolutely beautiful venue, Exceptional and Professional Staff!
I don't know where to begin to describe how absolutely beautiful my daughter's wedding was. It was everything she had hoped for x 100. From the moment my daughter Sam saw the venue she knew it was what she wanted, but nothing could prepare her for the way it actually turned out, breathtaking. Kristen is an amazing person. She is super organized, super professional and does not miss ONE beat. She is the conductor in the symphony. With her you do not need to worry about anything. She listens to everything you say and will create the magic you dream of and then some. We will be forever grateful to her and the staff for their dedication and hard work. We miss her already! Jamie and his production team are top notch and can handle anything you ask. The bartenders and wait staff are fantastic! They were extremely attentive to everyone. Special note about Jennifer, she was an absolute love, super sweet, kind, attentive, all around just Great. Our guests could not stop complimenting the food (thank you Noah!!!!), the drinks, the staff, the service, the venue....My baby girl's wedding was beyond INCREDIBLE thanks to this wonderful team of great people. If you're looking for an experience of a lifetime and memories beyond compare Suffolk Theater, Kristen and the Team will make your dream come true.Sent on 05/28/2019

We couldn’t have been happier
As soon as we walked into The Suffolk Theatre, we both knew that was where we were going to get married. Being theatre industry professionals ourselves, we had a specific vibe we wanted for our wedding and this place could not have been more perfect. Not only was the classic and unique aesthetic exactly right for the romantic and whimsical wedding we were planning, but the staff and technicians working with us this last year, run as tight of a ship as any theatre we have ever worked for. Our venue coordinator, Kristen, is even more organized than even my own type-A little heart. You are in good hands with her running your “show.” She is thorough, detailed, and truly gave us the sense that she was just as invested in the success of the day as we were. We’re still fielding comments from our bridal party about just how stellar Kristen was and how she managed to make one of the most stressful days of our lives flow so smoothly. Kristen is a multi-tasking, organized, accessible, sweet, and professional all-star. The venue is insanely flexible with your requests, whether it be catering, decor, bar requirements, etc. If you have a specific idea, just ask. They bent over backwards to help us find a plan that was right for us. And we are STILL getting compliments about the food. Book this venue. Seriously. From start to finish, we never doubted if we had made the right choice.Sent on 11/28/2019

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.Sent on 09/12/2019
