Palace Theatre

The Atmospheric style Palace Theatre was in downtown Brainerd, where the American Legion building now stands.

Opened on April 22, 1932, my uncle recalls seeing films in the 1930’s and Saturday afternoon serials at this theatre for a nickel. It had closed by 1950.

The April 17, 1931, issue of the Brainerd Dispatch reported that the new Palace Theatre would open on Wednesday, April 22. The interior of the new, 475-seat showhouse would feature “…English architecture on the atmospheric type, a colorful arrangement of drapes, views of bungalows and blue sky ceiling effects….” The Palace, like the recently rebuilt Paramount Theatre, was designed by the firm of Liebenberg & Kaplan.
