John and Drew Eberson designed a Palace Theatre and Commercial building for Park Center Realty Corp somewhere between 1946 and 1949.This is very likely the one.

There are many details of the theater still visible in the furniture store. The poster cases and neat deco framing are still there, along with the box office. In fact the lobby is mostly intact except for the concession stand. In the auditorium, they’ve de-quadded the place. You can see the scars on the ceiling and walls from the removal of the dividing walls. The angel wing decorations above the exits on either side of the stage area are still there, along with the projectiopn booth. The back of the house is arranged in stadium-style, and there is furniture set up for display on the risers. Definitely worth a trip!
