Located in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. The Park Palace Theater was operating by 1909 and operated under that name until 1915. It was renamed Park Theatre in 1915 and was possibly closed in 1916. By 1926 it has gone from listings.

In 2013, the building was in use as a supermarket.

I wonder if a c/o meant the same thing back then as it does today.

The Brooklyn Public Library collectionsuggests the Park Palace was still open in December 1924.

It shows the Park Palace program for 1924-12-01 was D.W. Griffith presents “America” with Carol Dempster; “The Wanderer of the Wasteland” with Jack Holt; “A Dangerous Crowd” with Fred Thomson; “In the Palace of the King” with Blanche Sweet; “Second Youth” with Alfred Lunt; and more.

I’m guessing that its opening program was on 1921 March 14-20 Showing: “My Official Wife” with Irene Rich; “The Duchess of Buffalo” with Constance Talmadge; “Savages of the Sea” with Frank Merrill; “Man of Iron” with Lionel Barrymore; “Carnival Girl” with
Marion Nixon; “Popular Sin” with Florence Vidor; and more.

I wonder what the “and more” in the programs meant??

Shalom, ciao, and excelsior
