The Uptown Theater – Kansas City, Missouri
Venture into the past with a visit to the historic theater which first opened its doors in 1928 as the hot spot for Kansas City’s nightlife-loving set. Here you will witness the beauty of the past with the interior of the theater which as been restored to the time when it held court as the most opulent entertainment venue in town.
You will see a scarlet-curtained state to set things off, and then look around at the flamboyant Art Deco carvings that are certainly an intricate part of the past. Don’t want to be surrounded with the darker colors of the past? Then get ready for an eye popping experience as the Vegas-inspired color scheme moves you to excitement.
Just take a look at the hand painted ceiling which creates a spirited, party-hearty atmosphere, just what you are looking for if you are a lust-for-life kind of person. Jump up on the state and serenade your love from atop the marvelous, Ziegfield-esque sate. Put her (or his) name up in lights in the old-school neon marquis outside. What can set the mood for a great night more than having the world know you love the one you are with?
If you are going to have your wedding or special event there you can use the three dressing rooms to get all ready for the special event.
The theater staff can do the catering for you and if you choose to go with a less audacious setting there are more subdued aesthetic rooms available too. Just take your pick of the setting you desire.
