Virginia Theatre Overview

Start your happily ever after at the Virginia Theatre: a gorgeous, historic venue located in Champaign, Illinois. Originally opened in 1921, the stunning theatre features Italian Renaissance style architecture and a Spanish Renaissance style interior design. Throughout its long and significant history in the surrounding community, this local landmark has been a vaudeville house, theatre, and movie palace. The historic building has been completely renovated to restore it to its original splendor and now offers a beautiful and unique setting in which to host your wedding day festivities. Say “I do” on stage in the magnificent theatre and then celebrate with an elegant and unforgettable reception. Featuring stylish dressing rooms, a catering kitchen, a green room, and an abundance of spots in which to pose for spectacular “first look” or post-ceremony wedding photographs, the Virginia Theatre is a spectacular place to celebrate your once in a lifetime event.
