History of Palace Theatre
In 1984, the non-profit Palace Performing Arts Center Inc. was established to operate the Palace Theatre. Originally, the theatre presented vaudeville acts between feature films. Today, the Palace Theatre proudly continues to host the highest quality of live entertainment. A cornucopia of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen, Roy Orbison, Tony Bennett, and Melissa Etheridge have graced the theatre’s stage over the years. In addition, the Palace Theatre has featured world-class ballet, Broadway, family and children’s theatrical productions and a classic Hollywood film series.
During the afternoon in July and August, the Palace Theatre invites you to Summer in the City. Step out from the heat and come inside to enjoy a family-friendly movie on the big screen. From modern classics to new blockbusters, the theatre’s repertoire of movies will delight the whole family. Doors open at noon for games and activities. Then, the movie starts at 1:00 P.M. All children 12 years old and under get free popcorn!
On Saturday, August 17, the Palace Theatre will host the second annual Community Block Party. From noon to 4 p.m., enjoy an afternoon full of food trucks, face painting, games, giveaways and more! Don’t miss the live musical performance by The Ill Funk Ensemble!
