The History of the Corinthian Grand Ballroom

Built in 1924 at the height of the art deco period, The Corinthian Grand Ballroom was originally a Scottish Rite Temple. The architects created the evocative and richly appointed building with exquisite craftmanship and plenty of intricate details.

Following the Masonic Order, the building was converted into an elegant movie theater rivaling most and to this day, the screen still sits behind dramatic red velvet curtains and can be used for events.

The building was then transformed into a fine dining restaurant and was the place to be seen! Many of the service staff from this period are still here to this day.

In 1982, the building became The Corinthian Grand Ballroom and has continued as the premiere event and meeting venue that it is today. From weddings and corporate events, to meetings and pool parties, these historic walls have housed it all! We have even made quite a few appearances on popular TV shows and movies. One of the most notable films being “Mad City”, starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta (1997).

One step inside the breathtaking entry and you’ll instantly feel like you’ve been transported back to a time of elegance.
