According to a history of Greenfield, the Palace Theater was operated by Ruffin Amusements from 1937 until 1963. It appears there was an earlier Palace Theater that showed silent movies from 1918 until 1930, but I am not sure whether or not it was in the same building.

From the May 8, 1937, issue of Boxoffice: “GREENFIELD, TENN.— The Ruffin Amusement Company of Covington, Tenn. has leased the W.L. Hall building here for a modern theatre.”

A June 29, 1957, Boxoffice item about the 30th anniversary of the Ruffin Chain also says that the Palace opened in 1937. I can’t find anything about the earlier Palace Theatre.

Still standing.
October 2019 Street View shows a law office who confirmed it was indeed the former Palace Theatre.
