The Palace Theater was built on what is now Kennedy Drive in McAdoo and opened in 1919. It was built on the same site as the former Lion Theater which was totally destroyed by fire in 1918. It was a two-story building with 375 seats on the main floor and about 125 in the balcony. The theater had a stage and pipe organ which allowed both vaudeville and movies to be presented.
Sound was installed in 1932, but the theater remained mostly a neighborhood business appealing to the residents in McAdoo. The Palace often alternated between movies and stage shows, but showed mostly films in its later years.
The theater closed in the 1960’s and was demolished a few years later. The McAdoo fire station now sites on the site. Any additional information on this theater would be appreciated.
