Why We Are THE Palm Beach Event Venue...

It's simple – because of the flexibility in our venue space.


We have a number of different venue setups, and each of them can easily host a range of different events. In fact, we can handle a small intimate reception to a standing room only celebration with the most flexible space in the West Palm Beach area – which means for a lot of people with bigger families in West Palm Beach, we might be the only wedding venue that can host your collected relatives, Whether you want to or not is a different question.


Are you tired of venues telling you what you can and cannot do? Not here. We can bring your idea to life, no matter how outlandish. Zombie party, high-end politician fundraisers, reptile conventions, elegant bourbon dinner pairings, movie premieres, comic book conventions, award ceremonies, a camel birthday party… Yes, we have done all of that and more.


It doesn't matter if you need to host just a few people or hundreds, The Kelsey Theater was specifically constructed to accommodate any such requests. To understand why, you'd have to delve into the history of the Kelsey itself.



An Event Hall With Real History...

When you throw an event, are you looking for four walls? Or are you really looking for a location? Somewhere that can host you and can tell a story. Remember, whatever it is you're trying to communicate with your event, human beings communicate through a lot more than just the words they speak.


The Kelsey Theater was first built as an indie film house and rock music venue, but over the years has morphed into so much more than that. It's turned into the critical apex of the art scene in our area, pulling the entire downtown neighborhood around it up into a thriving, vibrant artistic center. The Kelsey Theater was legendary for being where everyone came to enjoy cultural constants in our society – from the working class to the wealthy.


The stories that have unfolded in these walls have shaped entire cultural moments, and the Kelsey has become about precisely that: cultural.


This isn't just an event venue.

This is a cultural hub.


And culture encompasses a whole range of things.

In fact, more importantly, it enriches a whole range of things.


That's why the Kelsey has been so focused on making sure our spaces can accommodate any kind of culture, be they:


  • Live music shows

  • Comedy shows

  • Movie premieres

  • Weddings

  • Retirement parties

  • Sweet 16 parties 

  • Birthday parties

  • Coming of age celebrations

  • Corporate events

  • Niche cultural conventions

  • And many more


Because all these things are culture, and they're what give The Kelsey Theater it's lifeblood...

And more importantly, they give the events itself the historical charge that nowhere else in the area can replicate.
