I just saw Tesla here the other night. Nice theater, needs some renovating and TLC, but nice.

I wish Pittsburgh had a decwent concert hall like this.

The Palace Theatre was known by movie fans as The Manos Theatre

The theatre Had several very successful runs in the early ‘70’s with such hits as a 6 month engagement of “The Sting” and the holiday engagement of “The Towering Inferno” both in 1974.

The Manos Theatre was closed without notice by Cinemette Theatres in June of 1977. The next day, Cinemette opened Cinemas IV in Westmoreland Mall

A second downtown Greensburg theatre, The Cinema remained open for a few years as a porno house, before it was torn down along with a hotel to make way for a new parking garage behind the Westmoreland County Courthouse

Today, Greengate mall Cinemas, Cinema World – Eastgate Plaza, Cinemas IV – Westmoreland Mall, Laurel 30 in Latrobe, and the Rustic Drive-in have all closed. The only remaining movie theatre is the Carmike 15 in Westmoreland Mall.
