Why Choose the Egyptian Theatre?

Location

We are in the center of beautiful downtown DeKalb with over 1,200 free public parking spaces within walking distance of the Theatre. The historic theatre and downtown provide tons of fun and unique photo opportunities for your wedding party and guests.

Ambiance & Atmosphere

The Egyptian Theatre has been named one of the Top 20 Architectural Treasures in Illinois. From the beautiful mosaic tile floor in the lobby to the twinkling stars in the auditorium ceiling, the Egyptian Theatre provides a stunning backdrop for your special day.

Catering

We don’t have in-house catering which means you have complete freedom to do what you want. We can recommend caterers and vendors that have experience doing events here. You can do a buffet or a served meal or even food trucks lined up outside for your guests to enjoy.

Bar

Our newly renovated bar in the lobby provides an elegant setup to make your guests feel like they are movie stars. Beer, wine, cocktails, Coke products, frozen drinks, and signature drinks are all available. The bar can be provided as an open bar to your guests, a cash bar, or a hybrid in between.

Technology

We’ve got you covered with an in-house sound system, microphones, digital projector, theatrical lighting, easy tie-in for your DJ, and professional technical staff ready to make everything runs smoothly.

Dressing Rooms

You get to be the A-list celebrity for the day getting ready in the dressing rooms with large mirrors surrounded by makeup lights. Your “getting ready” photos will be unlike any others. Our dressing rooms provide plenty of space to get ready, countertop space, shelving, clothes hanging, seating, refrigerator, private restrooms and a shower.
