The RKO Palace closed on 2nd August 1965 and demolition of the building was completed four months later.

You can go to the site for the Rochester Theatre Organ Society at http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/index.htm and click on the “Photographic Memories of Rochester’s RKO Palace to see a slide show of black and white photos of this theatre.

Hi Hilarie. If you have access to the Rochester Public Library their local history department used to have photos of several Rochester theatres, including the Palace. You might also try the Rochester Historical Society. If you’re not local (even if you are) you can contact the Rochester Theatre Organ Society. They may have some photos they are willing to share with you. You can probably get their contact info from the internet. As a final possibility, there is a series of books called “Images of America”, their volume on “Rochester Labor and Leisure” has some interior and exterior photos.

The architects who designed this theatre were Graven and Mayger.
