Palace Theatre turns 100

CANADIAN, TX — A hundred years have gone by but the Palace Theatre is still going strong and recent renovations have made it as strong as ever. This gem of the panhandle even has THX-certification.

The theater opened in 1909 as the Pastime before it was renamed the Queen Theatre in 1916. The venue received its current moniker, the Palace Theatre, in 1932.

The theater’s 1998 renovations preserved the venue’s vintage look.

An art deco style reminiscent of the early 1900s can be seen throughout the theater.

You mean there’s a town in Texas named Canadian? I wonder if there’s a town in Canada named Texan. Beautiful theatre and nice article. Would like to visit it someday.
