Old Hollywood - An Eventective User

This space is amazing! It transforms you into an old Hollywood state of mind. It's larger than life. This is perfect for a very elegant, very large party or event. I attended a wedding with about 400 people and it was perfect. Lots of room, the decor is amazing. They didn't have to decorate much. The venue speaks for itself.

Beautiful venue, great soud. - An Eventective User from St Joseph MO

I went to midland theater back in July 2011 for an event called Global Dance festival. I had not been to this venue before this and did not know what to expect. Once I got inside I was treated to a spacious venue with beautiful scenery. It was decorated like an older classic style theater. It had several levels with several rooms on each floor. The upper balcony had an amazing view of the main stage. The sound system was amazing as were the acoustics of the venue. I would recommend this venue to anyone for a party.
