Rialto Square Theatre Overview

Plan the wedding of your dreams at the Rialto Square Theater. This former “vaudeville movie palace” originally opened in 1926 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Say “I do” in either the luxurious and dramatic Rotunda or on the Stage inside the spectacular theater; both spaces will provide a stunning and one-of-a-kind backdrop for your romantic wedding ceremony. After you share your first kiss as newlyweds, enjoy a festive cocktail hour on the gorgeous Stage and then retreat to the beautiful Esplanade for an elegant banquet dinner prepared by the caterer of your choice. End the evening dancing in the Rotunda beneath its impressive domed ceiling and the extravagant crystal “Duchess” chandelier. With marble columns, intricate design details, and an elegant décor, the Rialto Square Theater features the grace and glamor of a bygone era; it’s the perfect place to host a lavish wedding celebration in Joliet, Illinois.
