The Palace Theatre was one of the Lower East Side’s earliest cinemas, opening in 1906 as the American Motion Picture Theatre, under the ownership of Charles Steiner. The premises were converted from a livery stable, but Steiner’s profits eventually enabled him to renovate the place into a real theatre, which had been re-named Essex Theatre by 1914.
By 1926 it was known as the the Palace Theatre but it did not survive into the sound era. Charles Steiner continued to be an important force on the Lower East Side with interests in such theatres as the Palestine, Mecca, Ruby, Sunshine, and Apollo. He died in 1946 at age 63.
