theatre. With a massive stage, soaring event space, and unique historic charm, it’s an exquisite
place for a unique wedding with the vibes of a special concert or performance. If you’re looking
for a one-of-a-kind wedding venue, you’ll want to consider the LaSalle Theatre!
The LaSalle Theatre in Cleveland has a rich history that dates back to the years following World
War I when the nearby communities began growing quickly. Initially, the structure included a
theatre, retail stores, and apartments, quickly becoming a stylish and popular meeting place for
local socialites. The LaSalle’s theatre space was originally built in 1927 to host vaudeville
shows. It quickly began showing movies as silent films, and eventually, “the talkies” found their
popularity. The LaSalle continued showing movies until 1991 when it closed due to weakening demand for single-screen movie theatres. It went through a brief phase as an antique car museum before
being abandoned for the following decade.
In 2008, The LaSalle was designated a Cleveland landmark, saving it from demolition. Soon
after, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and a major restoration began.
Renovations repaired major systems and structural decay, and they repaired their iconic marquis
out front and added modern technological improvements.
Throughout the pandemic, Phase II of the restoration included purchasing furniture, installing a
custom-designed sound system, and more. They added a commercial community kitchen into
one of the former retail spaces, and the shining gem of a theatre brought life and vibrancy to the
neighborhood once again.
The LaSalle Theatre is the perfect place for any performance or arts-loving couple. Your guests
will arrive through the beautiful lobby and into the main theatre area for a jaw-dropping
entrance. The space features a lofted sculpted ceiling, a massive stage framed by decorative
plasterwork, and a variety of other artistically preserved details.
The space features theatrical stage lighting and a custom-designed sound system for a true
performative experience! Use the stage for an epic sweetheart or main table, or bring in a live
band to really get the party rocking! The space accommodates up to 350 people for a seated
reception, so you don’t have to hold back on your guest list.
