Our History

The Rapids Theatre was originally constructed under the name of The Bellevue Theatre in 1921. It opened as a movie theatre and vaudeville stage, complete with a grand balcony and domed ceiling. After a long history of various ownerships and management changes, it most recently reopened as the Rapids Theatre in December 2009 on Main Street, Niagara Falls, NY.

This beautiful piece of architecture has been restored to all its original beauty. With its columned walls, the grand balcony and sculpted ceiling, The Rapids Theatre has unmatched beauty in an awesome display of craftsmanship and elegance. The attractiveness of the entrance and the marble and tile vestibule and lobby gives promise of the wonderful beauty of the foyer and auditorium, which is nothing short of captivating. The broad foyer is done in cypress and richly carpeted. The indirect lighting system throughout is of particularly enhancing design and in its soft glow, one glimpses appealing beauty on every side. There is nothing left to desire in that which the art builder and decorator devises.

I cannot express how perfect the Rapids Theatre was for our wedding! Lindsay and her team were amazing to work with, and I felt so relaxed being in such great hands! I have received so many compliments on how beautiful the theatre was and the top notch performance they did! I am forever grateful!

Our ceremony/reception received so many compliments because of how beautiful the venue was. They were super accommodating with what we wanted to do with the space (bring in pinball machines, skeeball, a video booth, etc). One or two small things hit a snag but the staff used those opportunities to actually learn from it and prevent similar issues in the future, which we thought was pretty cool."

I cannot say better things about Marie and her staff at Rapids! I had to add them to this site just to be able to give them the reivew they deserve. She listened to every little request, her attention to detail is impeccable and best of all, SOOO easy to work with! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for something new and unique, and who loves a perfect wedding reception!

If you'd like a stand-out, take your breath away, absolutely amazing venue then the Rapids Theatre is the place to go. Marie takes care of everything, so all you need to focus on is enjoying your special day. An added bonus is that the venue's set up makes beautiful and unique photography and state of the art sound a given."

We had our ceremony and reception at The Rapids Theatre in August 2015, and we were absolutely blown away by everything! Although they sometimes took a while to respond to emails, they were very flexible in all the changes I made and with all my new ideas in the months leading up to our wedding. They took care of everything on our wedding day, and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Just working with Lindsay, the even coordinate, makes you want to book this place. It's really not too much to look at from the outside but the inside is incredible. They're VERY accommodating and will work with you to make your wedding whatever you want it to be. I myself didn't even want to go look at the place but I was sold and didn't have to look at any other options. This is a place that you have to at least consider!! Five-star deserving!
