“As an events director the biggest fear is trying new venues. Emagine Royal Oak & Star Lanes put all my fears to rest with their excellent customer service, attention to detail and spectacular venue…Our guests at Crain’s 40 Under 40 said this was the best 40s event yet!”

Nicole LaPointe, Events Director, Crain’s Detroit Business

“Having our corporate event at Star Lanes at Emagine Royal Oak was definitely a one of a kind experience, the staff and management team are absolutely outstanding!…We can’t wait to come back!!!”

Megan Donnelion of Billhighway

“This was GSTVs first ‘All Employee Meeting” with presentation requirements; the outcome was as good as we “emagined” it could be….We didn’t need anything as the pre-planning was detailed and even the lastminutes changes were handled without issue.  The theater setting just added to the “wow” factor…I have had great responses from all who attended and those in the area are planning to visit again.”

Lori Wayne of Gas Station TV

“Our attendees and our Board of Directors were so impressed with the facility and staff at Emagine. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate our needs for the 64th Annual Community Awards event in October 2011.  I hope they have room for us again next year!”

Shelly Kemp, Executive Director, Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce

The serving staff was extremely friendly and their timely service was above and beyond their expectation. On behalf of our entire group of 20 or so guests, we wanted to thank you for the exceptional experience. Please pass along our appreciation to the entire staff. Thank you again.

“I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how happy we were to have our daughters Bat Mitzvah party at the Emagine this past weekend…One of the things that I loved the most was the fact that Emagine made the party amazing yet still stay within our budget. It was better than we could have ever imagined.  Thank you again for helping to make one of the most special days in our daughters life a success not only for her, but for us and our guests.  I look forward to working with the Emagine in the near future.”
