The Palace was part of Hook Theaters in the early sixties. President was R.E. Hook, headquartered in Aliceville. Mr. Hook also ran the Hook Theater in Eutaw, AL and the Dreamland in Macon, MS.

I was one of the projectionist at the Palace in the 70’s for several years. I don’t know the architecture or style, but if someone is willing to help, I can describe almost every inch of that place – lighting, seats, speakers, curtains, floor layout, etc. That place is special to me with many, many found memories.

The Palace burned to the ground in the late 70’s/early 80’s, we’re sure at the hands of an arsonist (pissed-off teen)

I knew Mr Roth Hook quiet well – a classic southern talking, jolly, cigar smoking man…that liked money. Mr. Hook also owned another closed theater in Reform – can’t remember the name.

I found an old newspaper (Gadsden) that puts the night of the fire on November 21st, 1978. I couldn’t recall the exact date, but I certainly recall that night – I was a member of the volunteer fire dept there in Aliceville. The map attached to this has the location slightly off – it was about ½ block south of 3rd ave NE on Broad St.
