2 people favorited this theater
Built in 1927 on W. Fifth Street close to S. Williams Street, the Palace became one of the most popular theatres in Dayton’s predominantly black West Side. For part of its history, the Palace was the equivalent of the Apollo Theatre in New York City’s Harlem, with Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie, and Billy Eckstine among the many stars that performed there.
Stage shows ended in the 1950s, but movies continued until the Palace closed in the 1970s. After standing vacant for decades, the Palace was demolished in 2002.
