1405 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, KS
This historic theatre is a must see! Built in 1922 as a silent movie theatre with an orchestra pit, it was made for live music. The building's art deco craftsmanship, seen through vibrant brick inlays, offers a dramatic entrance into the space. Once inside, the 6,500 square foot building boasts 20' high ceilings and sweeping views throughout the main event space; your gaze will wander to the original stage valence framed by customized architectural lighting. Plush red velvet curtains greet you upon entering the space and boldly frame the 16ft wide elevated stage. Where theatre seating once was is now a completely open concept, offering uninterrupted sight-lines and allowing creative flexibility in how you arrange your event. In 2009, major renovations to the Vox Theatre space included refinishing the original pressed tin ceiling, upgrading and polishing the main space concrete floors, a catering prep kitchen buildout, and access to a private backyard patio space. The walls were refinished with textured plaster and custom-made sound panels were installed to harness the acoustic excellence of the space. Are you ready to host a remarkable event at the Vox Theatre?
