"Everyone who attended our wedding commented on how perfect the venue was and how refreshingly unique our ceremony was. Being able to show our slideshow (on a big screen with great sound) prior to the ceremony was also unanimously praised as a very moving introduction to the main event!
The folks at Uptown were very accommodating with helping us bring our vision to the screen and our ceremony to the stage. I would recommend anyone looking for an alternative to the tradition to consider the Uptown."
-Chad Smith. Groom of the Wedding
"The Uptown is a fantastic venue! When I thought of the idea for The Golden Bean Chocolate Festival I could not think of a better and more suitable venue than the Uptown. It was an epic event and fortunately all my planning and logistics were made easier by Jackie Deller and the Uptown staff as they were so helpful during the initial pre-festival stages right through to the actual day of the event. Definitely one of the key factors for my Festival's success was the space, atmosphere an setting the Uptown uniquely provided"

"The Hurly Burly Gurly Show of June 11th was a roaring success, largely due to the fact that the Uptown Theatre was absolutely the perfect venue for it. From the amazing stage, the vintage lobby, the flawless sound and the perfect lighting to the wonderful staff and in particular, Jackie Deller, I couldn't gave hoped for more!"

"The evening was perfect. The comments from all of our guests were "best wedding ever", "best reception ever", "best venue ever" etc, etc. The ceremony was great, everything went off without a hitch. Guests loved that we served popcorn during the ceremony. We had so much fun at the reception, our decorator did an awesome job of transforming the Marquee Room (not too much ofcourse) just gave it that extra little touch it needed to make it look a little fancier.
The bar staff were awesome. The dance floor was packed all night! It truly was the best wedding I've ever been to"
