20th century theater was the absolute greatest place to get married in Cincinnati. I'm serious. Please read this so you can book them this minute. My husband and I were just married there this past July. The 20th century team cannot be beaten. The owner Mark is probably the  coolest guy you will ever meet. He will do anything you want for your wedding. ANYTHING. He also is such a genuine and nice guy! The wedding coordinator Lindsey will answer all your million and one emails quickly and knowledgably. She was so incredibly helpful every step of the way. The DJ Mark is the also one of the coolest guys you'll ever meet. He will play any music you'd like and has such an upbeat and personable character. He made our reception so lively and fun, that it went until 3 a.m.! (Also, no other venues allow you to party until whenever the bride wants to leave. How amazing is that?) The photographers are all amazing. Kristina took incredible, clear photos and also took whatever photos we wanted! She is very kind and not overpowering or bossy like other photographers can be. We recieved more than 2,000 photos on flash drives, with no watermark, and we get to keep them all! No one else does that! We also got amazing video footage on 5 DVDs. And the footage is every part of the wedding. I was blown away by how beautifully the photograph and video team captured our day. Chef Greg made "the best wedding food I have ever had" said so many of my guest I couldn't keep count. It was absolutely phenomenal and I ate every bite, as did everyone else. The venue at 20th Century is absolutely beautiful with the stage, huge dance floor, amazing lighting, balcony and so on! The photobooth holds so many people in it for such fun pictures! The valet parking service was fantastic. The list goes on and on. If you book 20th century for your wedding, you will not be sorry. They made Josh and I's wedding absolutely perfect.


Thank you to everyone at the 20th Century Theatre for making my daughter and son-n-laws (Josh and Chelsea) reception one that will not be forgotten. Everyone was so accommodating and helpful. The food was so delicious and the lighting made the room so beautiful. Mark the DJ is a genius and had everyone dancing the entire night. Thank you for saving this remarkable theatre and turning it into a venue for all to use. What an incredible night and everyone was telling us it was the best wedding and reception they have ever been to. Also, so many comments that the food was the best at a wedding they have ever had. The staff was incredible. It was such a joyous night and we cannot thank everyone at the 20th Century Theatre enough.

Lindsey and Mark (and team),

We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! We can't thank you enough for all that you did to go above and beyond throughout the planning process and on our wedding day. The lighting, the music, the food, the service- everything was spectacular and beyond our wildest dreams. I can't tell you how many of our guests have told us that the food at our wedding was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding/large event! 

All of the music was so spot on to what we wanted. I am always the girl who requests a million songs from the DJ- but not once did I go up to the DJ booth to request a song because everything was so perfect. Our guests had an absolute blast, and thank you so much for keeping everyone on the dance floor!

I would love to write a raving review of 20th Century, the DJ services, the photobooth etc. because all brides should know how amazing it was to work with you all. Would the best place to do that be on Yelp, Facebook, or somewhere else? Let me know!

And thank you again, so much. 

We are just getting back from Beautiful Aruba, but couldn’t NOT contact you to tell you how much we appreciate you for helping to make our wedding day PERFECT!  I did a lot of planning and organizing, but you made the execution of my vision the best I could have asked for.

You were so excited and genuine that it felt like you were part of our family.  I wouldn’t change a thing and CANNOT WAIT to see the pics and video!  Please tell Kristina thank you for capturing our PERFECT day and let her know that you all have become our family photographers for life.  We’ll let you know when we are ready for the pregnancy and baby shoots, birthday parties, and graduations.

Love you guys!

To Mr. Mark Santangelo,

Although this email is long overdue, my husband, Marc, and I would like to give our sincere thanks to you for helping make our wedding reception perfection. We were married back in June 23rd, 2013 and held our reception at the 20th Century Theater. When I saw the lighting that you had chosen for us and how it complimented everything, I was floored. We felt like the night was full of surprises for us, and you were such a great DJ at our event! It’s been over 6 months, and we are STILL receiving compliments and praises from friends and relatives on how much fun they had on that dance floor and how amazing everything looked. Many exciting changes have occurred in our lives since that night, and 6 months has been a long time without sending a ‘Thank You’ so I hope this email finds you well. Once again, thank you so incredibly much, and I will certainly continue to spread the word on how amazing the 20th Century Theater is as a wedding venue and how wonderfully kind, detail oriented, and amazing you are as a DJ. Thanks!


I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work for our wedding. You did an incredible job and were incredibly professional and fun to work with. Thanks for helping to make our night so special.


Hi Mark,
I just wanted to say thanks for the great job that you did at our reception this past Saturday. We had a blast and everybody that we have talked to had nothing but great things to say. We really appreciate that you were able to play our favorite songs throughout the night and all requests that were made. Everybody loved the texting that showed on the stage and we were wondering if you will be able to send those to us?
Thanks again!!

Hey there Mark!!
You are the BEST! Thank you so much. You did such an awesome job with everything for our wedding. Thank you so much for all of it. And we really appreciate the ride to the Westin- that was so kind of you and your wife to take us down there. We were hungry and tired and overserved. :) Talk to ya soon!

Thank you so much for everything you did for us! You made the night so amazing and memorable. You were definitely more than we could have asked for! And thank you for stepping in as photographer when ours decided she had better things to do. Just let me know if you mail/mailed them or if I need to go to 20th Century to pick them up.

Thank you for making our wedding night beautiful and full of wonderful music and lights! You helped us pick the right music even last minute as we were setting up the venue on the Big Day. You are a wonderful DJ and helped keep us on time and having fun. You're professionalism and personality are a big help in planning and pulling off the day that starts the rest of our lives. David and I have received so many complements about how well everything sounded and looked, and we know that those words need to be passed along to you. We will definitely be recommending you and the 20th Century Theatre to anyone who needs a Venue and DJ! Don't know if this will help, but we have a few pics of you being Mr Awesome DJ, and if you would like to use them in your portfolio I'm happy for you to have them. there should be another email with 2 more pics after this one. Again, Thank you for helping make the wedding day Rock!

Hey Mark!!!
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for being a part of the wedding day! No words can express how great you made the evening. It was definitely a night to remember and you were amazing! I may be crazy, but did you give us or say something about a CD recording of the evening? Because since we didn't get videography, I would love to listen to the vows, etc. Again, thanks so much. You were truely awesome to work with!
Thanks, thanks thanks!!!!

couldn't say it enough or in enough ways, but thanks for everything. 8-4-12 was a perfect day for us. You did a great job, we received a lot of positive feedback not only about the music, but your friendly personality - goes a long way in working a crowd. If you don't mind, please send me your home address as we'd like to send a more 'formal' thank-you from both us. Also, let us know the best places to leave positive reviews for you and we'd be more than happy to.
