A slice of history within a modern city
Don’t let the word “theatre” throw you off- this venue is sophisticated and as elegant as any other building you’ll find in the city. In fact, with it’s era-specific architecture and moody lighting, it might be the most high class venue we know of in Detroit!
But, let’s get real. What we really, really care about is making sure you and your guests leave your event with photos that are good-looking, last a long time, and truly capture your party no matter what venue you chose. But renting at Gem Theatre pretty much guarantees your Michigan photo booth will turn out beautiful keepsakes of the big day. And, it’ll be so hassle-free! You and your guests won’t be searching for the photographer, or having to fret about how you looked in your photo since we print them on site. Then after your guests see how great they look, they’ll be coming back all night long.
Why Gem Theatre is truly that – a gem!
Gem Colony Events uses both the Gem Theatre and the Colony Club for their clients, but the Gem Theatre is special. Though it hasn’t been screening movies since 1967, all of the old time class of when it was originally built (1936!) still remains today. It’s known well around Michigan for it’s unique Spanish Revival and Arts & Crafts architecture, with warm-toned hand painted dining rooms that make it stand out in photos and in the memories of every guest that enters.
With the main theatre room having two levels, and additional rooms off of the old screening room, there are plenty of ways to place your Detroit photo booth rental for guests to visit all night long.
What you’ll get with Gem Theatre
We’ll tell you right now, you’ll get a lot! The theatre consists of three separate event spaces with seating, and areas for dancing and food and gift tables in two of those three. The third is the Century Theatre space where they used to screen the movies, so it makes sense that it’s more idyllic for photos and mingling (or setting up your Detroit photo booth). All three spaces can seat hundreds of people if needed, not to mention the gorgeous second balcony within the theatre area that overlooks the old audience seating. And besides the typical great perks of food and bar service, we’ve heard nothing but great things about their staff and event coordination, which make this a venue to reckon with.
