Palace Twin Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theater is located in the heart of downtown Duncan. The main auditorium is really nice, but the twin isn’t much. Inside the lobby there’s an old photograph of how the theater looked in its glory days pre-1940. Wow, was it something! It’s kind of plain these days. The twin is a next door building that has been converted. This theater plays first run movies and has excellent picture and sound quality. There’s nothing really fancy here, but it is a really nice theater!

Original design of the Palace Theatre was French themed. When a new marquee replaced the old bronze and glass canopy, the look was updated to 1940s Moderne. Gleeming enamaled paneling sheathed the facade in 1963, bringing about a fresh new look.
Look at 1936, 1941, & 1963 photos by typing in word “palace”,

A 1987 photo of the Palace Twin after someone decided to cover up a nice red brick building with some ugly paneling.

On these pages can be seen recent color photos of the Palace Twin.
A very nice example of a typical small town theatre.
