What a great theatre…I was there for a second time yesterday for Insane Clown Posse and covered in Faygo diet Root Beer.I had a feeling it was a movie theatre at some point.
I can’t wait to post tons of pictures of my new favorite theatre.
I was just there yesterday for “The Iceman Cometh”.
January 4th 2015 is the last day for the Center and will break my mother’s heart…
If I die. I will haunt this majestic theater.

The Crystal Palace (a/k/a Polanaise Terrace) has closed as of 9/30/2013.The building will soon be demolished and turned into a high-rise of condominium apartments.
Woodhull Hospital now stands in that spot. Here is some trivia for you: the abandoned lot (formerly know as the Alba Theatre) is can be seen in the santa claus French Connection foot-chase scene (do you pick your feet in Poughkeepsie CT?)
November 30th tell all your friends….35mm Double Feature: Blues Brothers and Animal House..
That theatre must have been so ornate, my heart breaks for its loss.
Sadly this sort of thing happens…I am a frequent visitor to The Palace and thank heaven that it is still open and operating at its full glory!
Hello all I am happy to report that I was here again on September 18th for Zombiegeddon.I am thoroughly convinced that I am in love with The Palace Theatre..they don’t make them like this anymore.
I was just here at this place on April 20th for a showing of Big Lebowski and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas..the mens room has a very low ceiling.

This theater may have been called the Franklin Art in 1973, according to Boxoffice magazine: (heres a better link from the Landmark Syracuse page)
i like its exterior.
indeed a great place to kill time before your 4:15 train back to NYC. ..Well that is after you eat at Denny’s across from the Ramada.
