more contemporary styles of the adjacent Rhythm Hall and

Have your first dance in Rhythm Hall in a soft, ambient glow created by our state-of-the-art light and sound system or your name in lights in Carpenter Theatre’s Grand Marquee.
Originally opened in 1927 as a Shriners auditorium, the Altria Theater has recently undergone major renovations to return it to the showpiece it once was.

The overall effect is one of luxury and romanticism, the perfect place for your special day!
