We are working on reopening this theater as the Kennett Palace Theater.

Here is a 1928 photo of this house when it was called the Palace, and here’s another view from the same year (click the images to embiggen, then see the “All Image Sizes” link to the right of the next page to fetch even bigger versions.)

In this photo of the Palace, there’s an ad for the 1929 movie “Hot Stuff” with Alice White. This film was a musical, so the Palace had been wired for sound by then.

Oddly, there is no theater name visible on the building in any of these photos. The name and location are derived from text written on the sheets to which the photos are mounted.

A local group is exploring the options for reopening this theater as a not-for-profit, mixed-use facility: http://www.dddnews.com/story/1709189.html. According to the article, the theater was once known as the Palace, which should be among the AKAs for this theater.
