Originally known as the single-screen Palace, the theater, later renamed the Camelot, was twinned at some during its life, converting the theater’s balcony into a second screen. The theater’s main auditorium contained stadium-style seating.

The Camelot was closed by Greater Huntington Theatres at the beginning of January, 2006. The building is now home to the Jeslyn Performing Arts Center.

The Palace Theatre seated 1325 people when it was a single screen theatre.

GHTC closed the Camelot Theatre Jan. 5, 2006
From a story about the Keith Albee Theater closing Jan. 22, 2006. I dont know the future of this building but I do know that all movie equipment was removed from it.

The Camelot is no longer a movie theater. It is now Jeslyn Performing Art Center. www.jeslyn.org It is a wonderful addition to our downtown. The new owners are slowing refurbishing it. If anyone has pictures of the original Palace Theater they would love to see them.

There is a 1930’s Palace theater cloth movie banner that lists the Spring movies for sale on EBay. It was posted earlier in the week.

Jeslyn recently renovated the former movie theater. The marquee has been removed. It’s still open, however.
