I have an early hand-tinted postcard of this theatre. It is of Main Street South from 9th Street. Though not postmarked it seems to be from the early 1920’s judging from the cars & horse drawn carriage. The signs for the Palace stretch all the way down a long brick 6 story building. The upper windows are arched & there are several businesses (including a bowling alley, dentist & shoe store) across the street. When the add photo feature returns I would be glad to share this image. The signs are not too legible but the main theatre marquee looks like it says “Roerbach & Goettel”? Another looks like it says something about the “cleverest beast”.

Boxoffice of June 19, 1954, ran an item saying that Louis Donnici had sold the Palace Theatre, which had been acquired by his father, Dominick Donnici, “…nearly forty years ago from Richard & Flynn.”

The Palace Theatre was listed at 932 Main Street in the 1914-1915 edition of The American Motion Picture Directory, but the house opened no later than 1909, as it was listed in that year’s city directory. The Palace was on the ground floor of the St. George Hotel, built in 1895.
