Historic/Landmark Building


Dominion Arts Center which houses Carpenter Theatre, Rhythm Hall, Showcase Gallery, the Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse and the Genworth BrightLights Education Center, is a stunning grand building rich with history and overflowing with charm unique to Richmond. The cornerstone of the Dominion Arts Center is the fully renovated, historic Carpenter Theatre. This grand theater has nearly 1,800 comfortable, spacious seats, state-of-the-art acoustics and brilliant lighting, including new fiber optics that enhance the ceiling’s sparkling stars, making for a spectacular setting for a grand, classy wedding. Added on to the Carpenter Theatre is Dorothy Pauley Square. Attached to Rhythm Hall is Showcase Gallery, a visual arts space perfect for a sophisticated cocktail party for before the wedding or after the reception. Just upstairs is Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse, a 200-seat theater that provides an intimate venue for a grand production of a wedding in a cozier setting. The Center is perfect for a Gatsby theme wedding or a classic, simple wedding that will ooze Old Hollywood atmosphere just from being held there.
