If you want to be star for your event, then this is the place for your special day. The Loew’s Jersey Theater is a glorious throwback to the movie palaces of yore, and one of most unique venues to host an event in NJ. Built as one of the five opulent “Wonder Theatres”, the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre, on Journal Square in Jersey City, went from the height of decadence in 1929 to being slated for demolition in 1987. Against all odds, the historic theater was saved by the persistence of a handful of locals and has been lovingly restored almost entirely by volunteers for over 20 years. In a city full of churches, it stands alone, a once-grand and imposing cathedral. Atop its roof, a valiant St. George waits, ready for another battle with the dragon. Inside, a crystal chandelier hangs from a dizzyingly high ceiling. Hollow footsteps echo across cold, bare floors.
