The Arts -- Palace Theater

From their website:

Built in 1921, the first film shown at The Palace was Cecil B. DeMille's Something to Think About starring Gloria Swanson, plus a Max Sennett comedy Salome vs. Shenandoah . This theatre has been completely restored and updated with the latest lighting and sound equipment.

Coming Events

The Spinners -- Sept 20

Michael Martin Murphey – Dec 16

Please click on the link above if you are interested in more photos and history. There are photos of the inside, too. This theater is on one of our brick side streets downtown, half a block from the Warehouse Living Arts Center and across from the WLAC Children's arts building. There are posts below about those two.

"Louis" is happy to see an old theater restored rather than turned into a multi-screen cinema or worse...
