Known as "Your Live Entertainment Destination," We at Memories do our best to provide exciting and unique answers to the eternal question: "What should we do for a killer evening of fun tonight?"
A murder mystery is a type of dinner theater performance in which audience members cooperate with each other and interact with the performers in order to solve a fictitious murder scene. Murder mysteries are most often comedic in nature and performed in coordination with a meal.
Prior to the show starting, the cast will mingle with the audience members going table to table introducing themselves. This is a great way for you to mingle with crazy characters and shady suspects while getting some insight as to just who each character is. As the night continues you will get to interrogate the suspects, gather the clues, and work with your team to help our mystery experts crack the case before the killer gets away!
Audience members are encouraged to put together an outfit that will complement the show you are about to see. This is another great way for you to feel like you are part of the show. However, if you choose not to dress up, you will still have a good time!
The goal of a murder mystery is for participants to enjoy a great meal, make new friends and gather clues provided throughout the evening and use them to deduce the identity and motive of the "murderer." Prizes are awarded to the table that is closest to solving the mystery, and one to the table that does not even come close!
We hope you will join us for one or more of our upcoming Murder Mysteries here at Memories.

All seating is assigned based on the date of reservation. If you have a group you wish to be seated with, please call Memories directly or make one online reservation for your entire group.
Memories uses a proscenium setup with the stage in the front of the hall for Murder Mystery events.

What if I have a group of friends who all want to come to an event together?
At Memories, we are thrilled to see groups of friends and family enjoying a night together, experiencing great food and entertainment. To make a group reservation go as smoothly as possible, we strongly recommend that the group of guests select one person to make the reservation for the entire group. Upon making the reservation, you will be asked how many guests are in your group. Payment should be made at the time of reservation. Please inform your guests to check-in under the last name of the lead person, who made the reservation, on the night of your visit.
What if the guests of our group all want to pay for their own portion of the reservation?
We realize that it can be a rather large sum of money for one lead guest to make payment for a large group at once. If that is not a viable option, Memories asks that the lead guest call in the reservation for their group and notify the box office at that time that other guests will be calling in their payment separately (Memories accepts Visa, Master Card or Discover). At that time, the lead person should also supply Memories with the list of guest names and how many guests are being paid for under each guest's name. Then, when each guest calls in to make payment on their portion of the reservation, our box office staff will locate their name in the previously supplied list and credit the payment to that portion of the reservation.
***Please take note: All Murder Mystery seating is pre-assigned by Memories' staff. If a group reservation is not organized in the manner described above, Memories CANNOT guarantee we will be able to grant post-reservation seating requests to individuals making separate reservations.
Is seating done on a first-come/first-serve basis?
As with all Memories entertainment events, seating is done on a priority-basis. This means that as the event date draws near, the box office refers to the admission/guest reservation purchase log for that day and begins filling in the tables from the front of the theatre and works back, in order of when the order was placed and paid for. Therefore, the sooner you make your reservation and payment, the closer to the stage you will be seated..
Do you allow walk-ins?
While we do accept walk-in guests on the night of the event (pending availability), it is strongly recommended to make reservations prior to arriving at Memories for a Murder Mystery. To prevent disappointment upon arriving to an event and being turned away, due to lack of available seats, making a reservation in advance is your best option to ensuring you won't miss out on these killer events.
