My friend enjoyed Dearly Beloved and said the acting was “first class and very delightful”.

That is what my friend told me…thanks for replying and of course…Aloha and Happy New Year, my CT friend.

Does this theatre still show movies or just stage productions. The latest stage production was Dearly Beloved as a friend of mine is there now and went last night.

Chuck1231: Great flickr site with lots of history given. Thanks. I have friends who are moving to Georgetown TX in January so I’ll make sure they go see a movie at Palace often.

I would love to see some interior photos of this theatre…been in contact with a Georgetown resident who may be of help to me.

It’s a shame that the Palace in Fredericksburg was lost to a western wear store titled Parts Unknown though they kept the Palace marquee and tile facade in place for all to enjoy though no movies are shown here anymore.

After viewing the before and after photos it’s nice to see this art deco theatre restored to its former glory! I hope those who live or decide to move to Georgetown to retire use and support this cinema treasure off the courthouse square.

A sad photo of the closed Palace in Georgetown taken 1990. Happily it has since been remodled, is open and doing well.

Tom……I have no other way to contact you so unfortunately I have to write this here. This is a quote from a message that you posted in the Boyd theater section. “Many good contributors to this site have left because of petty squabbles and an unfriendly atmosphere”. Well, your doing exactly what you complained about. Your helping to create an “unfriendly atmosphere”. Trying to humiliate Charles in a public forum is not my idea of creating a “friendly” atmosphere. In fact, its childish and counter productive to what this site is about.

Like Charles, I also do this as a hobby. I am not a “pro” like you and some of the others on here. If we make mistakes, they are not intentional. You can correct peoples mistakes without being mean spirited about it. No one should have to be afraid to post info that they believe is accurate because someone will jump all over them if the info turns out to be incorrect. This isn’t a contest of which person knows more than the other person. Whatever your gripe might be with Charles, get over it. A hobby is supposed to be enjoyable. I can’t speak for Charles, but I don’t need this nonsense. If this is how it is going to be on here, I will find a new hobby.

I have no intention of offending anyone. In twenty five years you must have accrued a tremendous amount of theatre knowledge. I would expect your posts and theatre descriptions to be impeccable and flawless with your amount of experience. I also have a similar number of years doing theatre research. Perhaps we should critique each others posts to make sure the data we add is always accurate. What do you say to my proposal Charles? We will also make sure that no data posted is taken ‘word for word’ from a theatres history site. We wouldn’t want to set a bad example for the other members here.
Some free advice for everyone here. Use library data with caution. Most theatre data contained in a library is not current. Use it as a starting point but do not base all of your knowledge on it.
