Venue Description

Originally built in 1928, the Fountain Square Theatre opened as a 1500 seat motion picture and vaudeville theatre. Decorated with an Italian garden theme and highlighted with a forty foot dome ceiling with twinkling stars, the theatre enjoyed many years as a premier entertainment venue. Closed and gutted in the late 1950's the former theatre space housed a Woolworth five and dime store, then years later a thrift shop.
After extensive renovations beginning in 1994, the Fountain Square Theatre is once again transformed into a starlit courtyard. Columned arches surround an expansive dance floor at the foot of a large stage and a balcony overlooks the main level of the theatre. The Mezzanine level of the theatre retains much of its original architectural details such as stained glass windows and ornamental plaster reliefs.
If you are looking for a unique venue to host your wedding ceremony and/or reception, a class reunion, dance, concert, or corporate function, the Fountain Square Theatre offers an historic setting for your event.
