Any new info on this theater? I’ll be moving a few blocks away from this location and would sure love to see it resurrected for cinematic use.

The Madison is on the East side of Main St. and the Palace was across from it and down a bit on the West side.

You have no idea … I was able to peek in the front window only to see sunlight shining through big holes in the roof. The interior is totally gutted, there’s not a single feature of it’s former glory left

I can’t say I know of this “Ray Heinz” but it’s a moot point … there’s basically nothing left in Peoria except the main part of the Madison theater.

The building currently on the old Palace site is just a professional/corporate office building … nothing worth a second glance.
