In the 50’s and 60’s, the burlesque houses in downtown Chicago ran movies between live shows. Actually, a pretty common practice in most cities.

The latest Facebook post by the theatre indicates no movies scheduled for a while. Doesn’t sound very promising .

Went here last night. There are leather recliners in all the auditoriums now, making for a comfortable experience. Major remodeling is going on with the addition of more food and beverage options. The restrooms could use a little more work as well.

Trolleyguy commented about Palace Cinema on May 3, 2015 at 6:01 pm

We went here last night to see the “Avengers” movie. The layout of the theatre is very compact and easy to navigate. Once past the lobby, the orientation is like a dogbone. The standard auditoriums are clustered on the north end, the Ultra Screen in the middle, and the Bistros, where food is served are on the south end. Each auditorium has a monitor which shows the availability of seats for the upcoming showing. There were only 4 single seats open for our show, essentially a sell-out.

Entering the lobby, to the right are the ticket counters and kiosks where pre-purchased tickets can be accessed. Straight ahead, the concession stand, and to the left, a lounge/restaurant. There is also an outside patio for dining and drinking, which has a firepit. Most welcome on cool nights.

The movie experience was pleasant and comfortable in those leather recliners.

Not sure how much longer this theatre can hold on. Located in a dying mall with no outside entrance.

Trolleyguy commented about Eastgate Cinemas on Apr 26, 2015 at 10:36 am

The “For Sale” signs have gone up on this property. There are no films scheduled at the Eastgate on the Marcus website after Tuesday, April 28, 2015, which appears to be the closing date. As the Palace in Sun Prairie is scheduled to open 2 days later, they will probably use that time to transfer equipment to the new theatre.
