Palace Theater...Jacksonville Texas

The Palace Theater was operating prior to 1941. It is housed in a nice two tone brick building with ornate details visible at window openings above a marquee that sheltered the entrance and outside box office. “Palace” was spelled out on each side of the marquee in white letters with neon accents.

Sadly, by the early 1980’s it had been triplexed and probably closed.

Using Google maps, the address should be 215 East Commerce Street. The facade of the building is clearly the former Palace. It looks like the building has been converted into offices for a law firm. The 207 address is looks like it may have a theater too; however, today it is a church. A satellite view from above clearly reveals auditorium style roofs.
