Renovated Theater Turned Ballroom (with Bridal Suite)

Ervay Theater is a 1940's movie theater that was renovated into a modern event venue perfect for your next event! The venue maintains the original theater entrance layout with the entry door opening into a retro-style foyer with a balcony stairway on the right.

The main event space can be accessed straight ahead via a wide hallway. The main area of the event hall is 2200 square feet, and has a beautiful steel stairway that leads to a 930 square foot lounge area furnished with stunning velvet lounge chairs and modern style end tables.

The dressing room suite is another stunning feature of the venue. With an oversized mirror, a vanity, ample plush seating, and a private restroom complete with a shower you and your entourage can prep in style.

Our venue can accommodate up to 200 guests for standing open floor events and 120 for seated events. Your guests will enjoy the convenience of secure gated parking for up to 50 vehicles. The gated parking lot also provides an easy load in-and-out via 10' x 12' roll-up door.

Event Types:

Weddings and Engagement Parties
Ervay Theater is the perfect wedding event venue for wedding ceremonies, receptions and engagement parties. As a wedding reception space, two catering stations will provide refreshments for guests. The stage, balcony and sweeping staircase can all be used for the bride’s or wedding party’s entrances, photographs and at key points throughout the event program. The Art Deco glamor of the venue makes any event memorable.

Special Celebrations
Parties bring together friends and family for fun. Whether it is a birthday, retirement, bachelorette party, family reunion, or quinceanera, the Ervay Theater is the perfect Dallas party space for a stylish event.

Corporate Events
The Dallas Ervay Theater provides corporate event rental space that provides flexibility to meet the company’s goals for the event. Whether it is a product release, holiday party or client appreciation event, the venue’s unique features, specialty lighting capabilities and sound system combine to create the distinct ambience that each company is looking for.

Networking and Social Mixers
Professional networking and social mixers are popular area events that require interesting, convenient and hip spaces for attendees. As a premier Dallas event venue, Ervay Theater is a location for memorable mixers. As the historic theater is in the Cedars neighborhood, close to downtown, it is a convenient location for most attendees.

While no two events are exactly alike, the Ervay Theater staff invites you to contact them. They can create a custom experience within the venue that meets all event needs.

So excited about this venue! We would have never been aware of it if it wasn't for this website. We are excited for the Open House coming up in February. It seems like the perfect location for our wedding reception for all our friends & family we didn't have at our private vows.

You have the option to bring in your own food, there is an outside catering fee associated with this however. We also offer in-house catering options to fit practically any event!
