I practically felt like I was stealing from them, their package is so good!!! Derek is so easy to work with, extremely laid back. The DJ they supplied (Ben Warner) was wonderful to work with. Bar service, set up for event, rehearsal, everything taken care of. Definitely took the stress off my shoulders!

My (now) husband and I wanted to approach our wedding ceremony and reception as if we'd never seen a wedding before. The Mission Theater was the absolute perfect place for us - it was beautiful, perfect comfortable space for our friends and family - and the people at the theater were friendly and helpful. They made everything easy and gave us lots of time and space to make our wedding exactly how we wanted it to be. I am 100% happy with how things turned out and would recommend this theater to anyone.

Words can’t describe how wonderful this venue was to me, my husband and our family. I was the kind of bride that had several questions and a vision of exactly what I wanted. Ryan was incredible about responding quickly and effectively to all my questions. There were a couple of details that I had to remind Ryan about, which is expected and everything was handled quickly. Ryan and his staff were beyond amazing the day of the wedding with details, setup and last minute changes. The staff had a helpful and fun attitude with the entire wedding party throughout the day. They are very flexible to make sure that the bride and groom are happy. The theatre provides such a romantic atmosphere for a ceremony and a fun environment for a reception. The flow of the reception was great as well as the DJ services. The staff had great communication with me thru out the entire event. We had several guests tell us how much fun they had. Guests also commented on what a cool and fun vibe the venue had. I would recommend this venue and great staff to anyone. If you want a romantic but fun wedding where you dance the night away this is the place to have your wedding.

We couldn't be any happier that we selected The Mission Theatre as our venue for our wedding and reception. They were tireless in making sure that our wedding went smoothly, and they stepped up to handle all issues so that we would be able to relax and enjoy the festivities. They actually even let our event run over our scheduled time, which was a really special surprise. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone. We were concerned about the DJ being "included" and not someone we specifically chose, but they did a tremendous job and the dance floor was going until the early hours of the morning.

We had my daughters wedding reception on 4/9/11 and I really enjoyed working with Ryan and Traci, they were very professional, quick to respond to questions and did a great job keeping the reception "moving" that night. The only thing I wish that the Icee machine would have been working, that was a big selling item for my daughter and her husband as they don't drink and for it not to be working was a disappointment.

My husband and I had our reception at The Mission Theatre on Sept. 19, 2009 and absoutely enjoyed every minute of it. It was laid back, Ryan made the entire event smooth and funny. Great personality for a DJ! The staff was wonderful as well. I did a lot of research on reception sites due to our budget and this was by far the best bang for your buck! They even went above and beyond and used their bus to make a couple trips back and forth from the Ramada Inn. I would definitely sugest this place to any bride!

My wedding reception held here was fabulous. They were willing to accommodate some of my more unique requests for the event including the use of a dance floor decal, homemade photobooth, and college mascot appearance. They were very attentive the entire night even getting the bride and groom drinks when they were low! I got many compliments on the music played as well. They kept the party going the whole night with a nice variety of music that kept people on the dance floor the whole time. The vintage theater atmosphere really makes the place warm and intimate. With this venue you really get an outstanding bang for your buck. It far surpasses the other generic banquet halls, country clubs, and even ball rooms that cost much more. I also had my photography through this vender and they had photos that were taken earlier that day at the ceremony playing on the theater screen by the end of the night in a slide show for everyone to see. It was really above and beyond what we expected. We can't wait to see the completed photography package.

The Mission Theatre is a gem! The owner, Ryan, was super helpful and the place was absolutely beautiful. We had a ton of people tell us that they had never been to a more beautiful or fun wedding. The catering can be an issue, as there is not much of a kitchen, but we had a full dinner as our ceremony was at four, and it worked out just fine. For the price, you will not find a better value or more elegant setting. Ryan is also an excellent DJ and his services are included in the rental fee, although you can outsource if you prefer. I would recommend the Mission Theatre to any bride looking for a ceremony and/or reception venue.

We could not have asked for a better place for our wedding. Thank you to Ryan and his entire staff for the great day.

The bartenders worked fast and kept my guests happy. The theatre was absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't have changed anything about that day, venue included! Thanks so much Mission Theatre!

When I was looking for a venue to have my wedding reception I feel in love with the idea of having it at a movie theatre. My fiancé and I had our first date at the movies and we are both movie buffs. When I showed him the pictures of Mission Theatre he was determined to have our reception there. We read a lot of reviews on The Mission Theatre (some good, some bad) but we still decided to go forward and I am happy that we did. Ryan was laid back yet still professional. He took our concerns and criticism and made any necessary changes. We got married on the hottest day in July (107 degrees without the heat index) and the venue was kept at a good temperature. I honestly felt that I got my money's worth at the venue. His staff (though some are a little rough around the edges in appearance) was extremely helpful and fulfilled the needs we had on our wedding day. I am so happy that this venue was flexible with my needs as a bride prior to the wedding. Ryan honestly made my husband and I feel special on our day.

Now for areas I would improve. I wish there was a separate space for the men to hang out. The area that was indicated (the Surf Bar) was not cool enough for them to be in there, so they were upstairs in the bridal suite. I do realize that Ryan is doing a renovation, but I wish that area was available. I also feel as though they need new drapes in the room. In pictures that I've seen they are pretty dingy in the photos but not to the naked eye.

Everything at Mission Theatre went very smoothly. Ryan and his staff truly did go above and beyond the call of duty by assisting us in any way possible. Ryan was also excellent in the DJ/Personality catagory. He made sure everything was to our satisfaction.

Ryan managed to throw in details to our ceremony that we had just told him about moments before going on stage.

An excellent job on our ceremony, slideshows and every other detail throughout our wedding day!

Thanks Ryan and Mission Theatre staff, we are happy we chose you all as part of our wedding day!

Overall we were very pleased with our reception at the Mission Theatre. Having worked in the event business before I was picky, but Ryan did a good job and helped to make our day a success. There isn't a full kitchen, but you would never know (if you choose the right caterer who is familiar with the space) our food was on time, amazing, and the service was great. Ryan was very attentive during the reception. He checked with us constantly to make sure we were happy and he did a great job keeping everything on track. It is a GREAT value in a very unique setting. If I had to mention something that wasn't 100% I would say that by the end of the evening the music got off track and cleared the dance floor and some songs we requested were missed. Also, there are alot of improvement projects going on in the rooms around the main theatre that you have to be willing to overlook. It was a great evening though and Ryan added a lot of little touches that made it beautiful. It was really low stress...which is something every bride needs. Ryan was also very flexible with our arrival, decorating, and clean up times. It was a great day and I would reccommend it to future brides.

Mission Theater is a one stop shop (almost). They provide ceremony, reception, deejay, alcohol/beverages. They are very laid back and let you do almost anything you want. It's nice to be able to bring in your own caterer, photobooth, etc. Our only complaint was the temperature of the theater, BUT we did get married in January when it was in the teens outside. Our whole entire wedding party and guests all said they had a GREAT time and loved the venue.

There were a few issues getting return calls from the owner Ryan and a big debacle where no one showed to open the theatre for our rehearsal until an hour after our scheduled time. That being said, Ryan did everything to correct the mistake of being late for the rehearsal. The venue itself was perfect for hosting our wedding and reception - neither of us attends church and we really wanted to have the ceremony and reception at the same location. They offer DJ services and the music was also spectacular. My dance floor was full all night long. All in all, I would choose The Mission Theatre for any other large event I have in the future and I would recommend them for your wedding/reception.

I would give this vendor 5 stars however it was a bit out dated when it came to the bathroom and dressing area. The quality of service, professionalism, value, and responsiveness were wonderful. You do get your moneys worth. It was an all inclusive venue. You wouldn't have to worry about a DJ, photographer, or alcohol.

We recently held our wedding at Mission Theatre. It turned out amazing. Of course there were hiccups and things that could have gone smoother but that is expected in every wedding. Our end result was a beautiful wedding and everyone had a blast! I would definitely recommend the Theatre to friends for their wedding.

My husband and I were provided with the following services from The Mission Theatre:

1. Wedding Ceremony/Reception Site
2. Officiate for Ceremony
3. Open Bar Services
4. DJ Services

Our experience with Ryan was always pleasant. We are pretty laid back and easy to please, however there were a couple problems that I would suggest looking into when planning your wedding with him.

-Completely unprepared with the dance music that was requested (one of my wedding guests ended up hooking up his own ipod and taking care of the music himself)
-Did not include a specifically requested line in the wedding vows

I will say that the music is partly my fault due to getting the information to Ryan last minute, however I believe there was still time enough for him to be better prepared.

Overall, aside from those issues, the open bar services were great and the staff was friendly. The theatre itself is a nice venue for the price, and it looks amazing with all the decorations and lighting.

The Mission Theatre responded with the following comments:

We strive very hard to make the DJ aspect as good as can possibly be. We are open to letting guests, provided it is acceptable to the couple hosting, bring in an iPod or CD's so that they can provide a more personal experience. My opinion on being a DJ is that it is my job to entertain the guests whether that be stepping back and just letting them have conversation over the music or rocking the place out. Unfortunately not every crowd wants to dance every song and some crowds want to dance only the slow ones while some crowds get out and dance every singe song all night. It all depends largely on the mood of the crowd. We have developed a playlist over time that we are constantly updating in order to provide a great guest experience. There are days that we use the developed playlist more than others and still other nights where we throw the playlist out and start from scratch based on the desires of the couple.

The venue was a beautiful place. & being I had my wedding on a Sunday, the price was AWESOME for all that it included. All of the staff was nice, but not everyone was very professional or communicates well. When I went to tour the venue for the first time, we walked in and noone gave us a tour or explained anything, just stood there. It took days at a time to get emails or calls back regarding things we needed to know (that should have been discussed at the first tour/meeting/etc). And everything kind of seemed last minute. When we went to look at it multiple times, it was a mess, the heat was never on so it was freezing, the bridal room and grooms room were a MESS and nothing seemed to be very orderly or clean. The day before the wedding we had rehearsal, & it was still a disaster so I was very concerned. The food prep room was full of filth and packed with other things.The heat was BROKEN and the toilet was leaking and not all lights were working. The next morning arriving for the wedding they had a guy there working on the heater; however, it took hours and was FREEZING all day getting ready. Communication was still a problem. The DJ, BEN and the Bartender (wish I could remember her name) were absolutely AMAZING. They assured me everything would be fine, they helped run the theatre and connected with ALL my guests! They made the wedding and reception PERFECT. After all the worry, they really helped lead and keep things going and on track. It turned out to be wonderful but I’m not sure that it would have happened without those two! I give them both 5 stars for sure! I just think it needs to be cleaned up majorly and it needs to be ran a little more professional. But in the end I suppose it all worked out just fine, just wish it was cleaner and more orderly. Still a wonderful place for the price! Not sure I’d pay more than what we paid for the Sunday wedding though!

The Mission Theatre responded with the following comments:

I am sorry that this particular bride was unhappy. We have made multiple attempts to speak with this bride and our phone calls are not returned.

This bride assured us on her wedding day that she was very happy and was having a great time. We make it our policy to check with couples throughout the evening to ensure their satisfaction and the answer was always that they were happy.

We bent over backwards to assist this couple and ensure their day was as special as can be as we do with all of our brides.

We loved the venue. The theatre has character, however we had a lot of problems with the venue itself. The venue needs a good bath. It is extremely dirty. The stage is in terrible shape and so is the flooring. Also, the men's bathroom has a "glory hole" in it. The stairs were falling apart and actually broke while we were there. My mom ducked taped it back together because neither the employees/owner seemed to care. The provided deejay service was horrible. We hired a band to play the wedding and during a set break the deejay started up and after one song the speakers over heated and shut off. Thankfully the band was able to start right away. The theatre had told us previously that we would be able to come get our decorations the next day but at 11pm we were told we had to be out by 11:30pm that night. This had never been previously discussed. We loved the venue but everything considered would not use again. The concept of the venue is great but needs a new owner/management. It is poorly ran and maintained.

The Mission Theatre responded with the following comments:

We have been very successful as a venue and have a formula that works very well as is evidenced by our other reviews on this site. We are a very flexible venue that allows clients to do the event the way that they desire, sometimes even at their own peril. We strive to be a resource to our clients and would like to be allowed to do the job we were hired to do, with that being said we were not allowed to really do anything that we were hired to do for this wedding. Most if not all of the suggestions we gave for this wedding were met with opposition and simply disregarded. This puts us in a difficult situation that we are judged by the success or failure of events that happen in our venue, but if the client is unwilling to work inside the formula that has made so many other of our events successful then there isn't much we can do. What I can say is that we were given many compliments on the venue the night of the event and in fact have an event in March that was the result of this event. We as a staff and myself as the owner work very hard for our clients and take exception to the comment that we simply don't care, I do and did everything I could to make this clients event special just as we do every event that we do. We make the offer to every client to come and pick their items up the next day if they choose, even though it clearly states in the packet that is available for download on our website that all times must be removed the night of the event. We are perhaps one of the most flexible venues in the city, I am truly sorry that we apparently didn't meet the expectations of this client. I wish that we would have been allowed to do what we were hired to do, I suspect that the result would have been different.
