  • Kim was great in the beginning. But then about a week before the wedding I could not get a hold of her and I had to continually talk to other people in the office. As any bride would know this was beyond frustrating because I would have to explain a simple question to this different person I was talking to. The food was great. The venue was great. We received several compliments on how everything was beautiful but I became very frustrated and stressed when I could not get a hold of Kim (who I had been dealing with since the beginning) and she was also not the person at our event, so again I had to discuss details with a new person.

  • My husband and I were so pleased with planning process at the Uptown Theater. Kim Baldwin is the coordinator there and she is so easy to work with. She has seriously thought of everything, but never makes you feel like you are asking a stupid question. She is also extremely responsive and fun to plan with. You do use the Uptown's catering - it's not the most amazing food in the world, but the chefs will work with you if you want to tweak stuff. As far as the overall 3/5 rating: I would recommend this venue; HOWEVER, I would add that you should specifically request any card box/gift table be in full view of a security camera (the venue is equipped with them). We had an issue with cards being stolen out of our card box and were disappointed to learn that only half of our gift table was in view of a camera. (I should be clear that I think Kim is a 5/5 - my markdowns are a reflection of the above incident).

  • My wedding at the Uptown in the main theater was magical! I highly recommend Kim and the Uptown staff. She was so organized, I had zero stress the day of the wedding. I was able to sip champagne in the green room while having my hair and make-up done, carefree. The event ran smoothly and my guests had a blast. I wasn't crazy about the food when we had our initial tasting. I expressed this to Kim and she assured me that she would make it right - and she did. We had an additional private tasting and the food was excellent at the wedding. The theater space is dramatic, elegant and fun. We were married on the stage and the staff quickly flipped the room for the reception. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Uptown - they made my wedding an unforgettable experience!!!

  • If you are looking for a venue that provides excellent all around service, the Uptown Theater is the place for you! I just got married in the Valentine Room and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. The food was great and the lighting and atmostphere was absolute perfection! I've received nothing but compliments and I have the Uptown staff to thank for that. Natalie (coordinator) ensured that everything ran smoothly. She was extremely patient and just a calming presence. Overall Natalie, Kim and everyone else we worked with was so nice and helpful and they really made my wedding day special!!

  • The Uptown was so perfect for our daughter's wedding. She had the wedding ceremony and reception here. I was a little concerned about everything being done in one room but the room flip went so easily and fast! These people are professionals! Kim made everything PERFECT for us. She handled absolutely everything for us. The entire event went flawlessly! I would definitely use this venue again if I only had another daughter. I cannot say enough about how valuable Kim was to us. Her staff is so amazing also. You can relax and enjoy the event without a single worry!

  • Kim Anderson and the rest of the staff at the Uptown Theater were absolutely amazing both leading up to our wedding with their responsiveness and helpfulness, as well as making our wedding go smoothly and turn out so special! This is a very unique venue and Kim and the rest of the Uptown staff definitely exceeded our expectations in every aspect. We had both our ceremony and reception in the Theater Room, and Kim was always there to respond to email and phone call questions, even for the smallest details, and had everything planned out, organized and ready to go to fit our needs and make sure everything was perfect! We had input in absolutely every relevant detail, and everything went great! I would recommend the Uptown Theater as a great venue for anyone who wants a unique wedding that's going to be smooth, easy and wow all of your guests!

  • I cannot say enough good things about the Uptown Theater. Kim, the event coordinator, is absolutely THE BEST!!!! Everything ran smoothly and beautifully. She was always there to answer questions and keep things moving, but was never intrusive or pushy. Absolutely AMAZING!

  • I'm so glad that we went with the Uptown's Broadway room for both our ceremony and reception. Kim Anderson is amazing and went with all our ideas, even the odd-ball ones. Everything went so smoothly and the staff was so nice to everyone. The food was spectacular. I love the Uptown!

  • Working with the Uptown staff was the best experience in planning my wedding. I have been to many weddings and everyone agreed that I had the best food at mine provided by the Uptown's kitchen. Kim was great! She answered all of our questions, showed us the room three times as my family, husband and myself are on different schedules. And helped us to get the best price in town!! Anytime I need to rent a space I will return.

  • We had our wedding reception in the theater at Uptown on August 1, 2009, and it was AMAZING. We booked a year and a half in advance and Kim Anderson worked with us throughout the whole time period. She was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. She and the Uptown staff took care of coordinating with all of our vendors the day of the wedding, and she even arranged to set up all of our rental items that did not have set up included (e.g., table overlays, favors, etc.) at no additional charge. The food was delicious - we got so many compliments from our guests! We were also able to get ready in the Uptown dressing rooms prior to the wedding which was a lot roomier than trying to do it at the hotel. Though the venue fee is a little high compared to other local venues, it is totally worth it. I had no need for a wedding planner/coordinator with Kim's help, so in that sense it saved me a little money!

  • The Uptown is a beautiful facility with several options for receptions. We used the Broadway room, which is a beautiful room with floor to ceiling arched windows. Kim handled our entire reservation with amazing professionalism and flexibility. The staff that evening were outstanding and went above and beyond to work with us in all details. I would give them a 5 on quality of service except a couple of the food items were not as ordered. That said...they were still very good and all went off without a hitch. We would go back to the Uptown in a minute!

  • overall, an easy and fun experience ... pros : all in-house, very flexible and helpful, easy to work with, great pre-event coordination, friendly staff at the day-of event cons : pre-event scheduling issues from the uptown, cake crumbs and icing on the window sills (which the groom ended up cleaning off before the event) ... random side note : we were told that our names could appear on the main marquee if there were no other events scheduled that evening. when we arrived, our names appeared on the side marquee. we were told that "advertising" issues took precedence over us. no big deal ... just a bummer.
