Look through these 10 Fun Facts about the Vox Theatre you may not have known:
1.We’re Growing. And Growing. And Growing!
The Vox just keeps growing due to all the different events held here. While widely known for weddings and receptions, don’t forget we can host just about anything here! Birthday parties, holiday parties, bar mitzvahs. And so on, and so on!
2. A Rich History!
The Vox Theatre has been a part of the Rosedale community since 1922. It was first a silent picture theatre, then upgraded to a “talkie” theatre. Then, in 2009, full interior renovations were completed when Alistair Tutton bought the building to utilize as his Photography Studio. Alistair is internationally known for his architecture, food, portrait, and product photography. We use the space as a photography studio and also an event venue!

3. Ceremonies & Receptions!
We don’t only host the party. Go ahead and schedule your beautiful ceremony here too! Believe me when I say we have plenty of space for both. And guess what! If you do, you have the option to take advantage of our gorgeous Bridal Suite! And speaking of our bridal suite…
4. Our Bridal Suite!
The bridal suite allows brides and their bridesmaids to prep for the big day while relaxing just a few yards away from where they’ll soon exchange “I Do’s”. Rather than travel from ceremony to reception, have it all in one place. This immediately takes so much stress off your big day. Seems like a good idea to me!
5. Make the Event Space Your Own!
The world is your oyster at the Vox. Each event is allowed to decorate the Vox however they would like. We offer sound panels on the wall for hanging artwork and a silver ledge around the room to hold battery operated tea light candles, pictures, or other decorations you might have.
6. Outdoor Area!
Right off the dance floor is a set of french doors that lead to the patio and backyard. As a result of using this area, you immediately increase the amount of event space and allow party goers to enjoy some fresh air, without being taken away from the party. You can also use our backyard and patio as the perfect backdrop to your wedding day photos.
7. The Kitchen!
We have a fully functioning kitchen that is available to all events. The kitchen comes equipped with an oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator and deep freeze. There are storage shelves, prep tables, and a sink! If thats not enough cool stuff – theres even paper, plastic, cardboard, and glass recycling available! We even heard a little rumor that caterers LOVE IT!
8. We’re Pet Friendly!
Starting at the top of the food chain, the Vox Theatre owner, Alistair Tutton, brings his pups to work almost daily. Along with his pups, visitors can expect to see a number of Vox staff members dogs coming and going in the space. We encourage you to bring your furry friend along while you party at the big event you’re planning.
9. Location, Location, Location!
It’s a realtor’s dream! Located right off I-35 on Southwest Blvd, the Vox Theatre is easy to find. Whether you’re coming from the Missouri or Kansas side, I promise, you can’t miss us. And, if for some reason you do, there’s always your GPS!
10. Confident Staff!
Small but mighty! That’s what they say. And that’s what we’ve got. Our event staff is incredibly involved from the very first steps of touring the facility – to the very last item being loaded out at the end of your event. We have Brooke Rohan, the Event Manager leading the way, Bailey Eichler, the Event Operations Coordinator, a team of hostesses – Jessica, Brittany, Daphne, Melyssa and Amy.
