Downtown Oxford’s first ever
wedding and private event venue!

Welcome to
The Orpheum
at Oxford

Originally built in 1912, it was later remodeled after a fire in 1941. The theater continued to operate until the early 1960s. The Orpheum has been meticulously restored to its original grandeur and small-town charm. Located in the heart of historic downtown Oxford, The Orpheum at Oxford venue is in the perfect spot to truly embrace the appeal of Oxford’s quaintness. Just 30 minutes north of Durham and a short 45-minute drive from downtown Raleigh, we welcome couples looking to get married in the heart of North Carolina. Whether you’re planning a wedding, corporate event, private celebration, or party, The Orpheum looks forward to welcoming you. 

The Orpheum is here to make your wedding to life for all of life’s celebrations. 

The Orpheum’s rich history and overall presence in our town is what inspired the remodel to turn it into a wedding venue. With original light fixtures, art deco architecture, a restored indoor mural, and upstairs balcony area, we truly believe our venue offers a unique backdrop for your big day. People often walk into the space and reminisce about coming to movies with their family or on their first date at The Orpheum almost 60 years ago – and that sense of community and nostalgia is what sets us apart still to this day. The space is full of historical and minimalistic charm, and we are so proud to share it with couples in the Triangle area of North Carolina and beyond who are looking for a unforgettable venue to start the next chapter of their lives.

Our all-white walls, high ceilings, nostalgic art deco charm, private suites for getting ready, exclusive access to our nearby sister Airbnb, and state-of-the-art sound system for epic dance parties are just a few of the reasons why couples choose us.

The Orpheum’s sister Airbnb, The Cooper at Oxford (also known as the H.G. Cooper House) is available for our couples’ convenience to use for accommodations, bridal or day-after brunches, showers, rehearsal dinners and more. The Cooper is located just two blocks away from The Orpheum for convenience and sleeps up to 12 guests.

The Orpheum proprietors completed a two-year restoration process in 2018 and won numerous awards for its revitalization efforts.
