If you’re in the midst of planning your dream wedding or searching for a venue that exudes charm and history, look no further than the Coleman Theatre in Miami, Oklahoma. Nestled along the famed Route 66, this historic gem offers not just a venue but an experience that will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests.

Built in 1929 for local mining magnate George Coleman, the Coleman Theatre boasts a rich history and stunning architecture that sets the stage for unforgettable events. With its Spanish Colonial Revival exterior and opulent Louis XV interior, it’s no wonder it was once hailed as the most elaborate theater between Dallas and Kansas City.

Danny Dillon, the managing director of the Coleman Theatre, understands the allure of this iconic venue. “The Coleman Theatre is the perfect location,” he says. “With seating for up to 1,100 people, the beautiful Coleman Theatre provides the perfect backdrop for weddings.”

Stepping into the Coleman Theatre is like stepping back in time. Visitors are greeted with intricate details, from gargoyles to cherubs, adorning every corner of the venue. But perhaps the most captivating feature is the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. Installed in 1929, this majestic instrument continues to enchant visitors from around the world, drawing them to experience its grandeur firsthand.

But weddings at the Coleman Theatre aren’t just about the grandeur of the past; they’re also about creating cherished memories for the future. The Coleman Ballroom, once an unfinished space, now serves as a picturesque setting for weddings, receptions and other celebrations. 


“Now, the ballroom is the perfect location for weddings, receptions, reunions, conferences and celebrations,” explains Dillon.

What sets weddings at the Coleman Theatre apart is the personalized attention and assistance provided to couples. Dillon says each couple will be provided with a dedicated wedding consultant, ready to address inquiries, manage lighting and offer assistance tailored to their specific needs throughout the event. From setup to cleanup, the dedicated staff at the Coleman Theatre ensures every detail is taken care of, allowing couples to relax and enjoy their special day.

Having witnessed firsthand the magic of weddings at the Coleman Theatre, Dillon recognizes the importance of alleviating stress for the bride and groom. “We handle all post-event cleanup for a nominal fee and we extend the convenience of returning the following day for any remaining cleanup tasks.” This thoughtful gesture exemplifies the Coleman Theatre’s commitment to ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience for couples and their guests.

In addition to its unmatched beauty and exceptional service, the Coleman Theatre offers incredible value for couples. With rental prices ranging from $550 to $1,200, couples can celebrate their love in a venue steeped in history and elegance without breaking the bank.

As you embark on the journey of planning your wedding, consider the Coleman Theatre as the setting for your special day. With its timeless charm, attentive staff and unbeatable value, it’s the perfect place to begin your happily ever after.
