The Palace Theatre was on the corner of E Front and Wharf (now an empty lot). It was originally a live theatre in the 1880’s named Frick’s Theatre and staged “The Squaw Man” (later to be Cecil B. De Mille’s first short film). The theatre was renamed the Palace Theatre.
Count Basie would visit this theatre in his youth: “For fun, Basie loved seeing silent movies at the Palace Theatre in Red Bank, particularly because he could listen to the live piano accompanying the movies”.
