The first Palace Theater opened in 1917. That theater was demolished in 1940 and replaced with another Palace Theater. Some people refer to the second theater as the New Palace Theater. The second Palace Theater building still stands today and is now home to the Full Gospel Church of Deliverance.

Newport News is one of the saddest victims of that evil curse-“urban renewal”.It once had a vibrant,busy downtown with large dept.stores,theaters and shops.It is a near total wasteland now.

As the 2nd picrure shows a lot of downtown,compare to a visit now.Where did it all go?You’d really have to look hard to find a downtown so destroyed.Leave it to the amazing Mr.Memory to show the truth so well.

Great shot of the Palace here. Caption says demolished but as we know it is now a Church.
