This is part of an article from the Lowell Tribune dated Jan. 18, 1951.

A tour of the “Palo,” Lowell’s beautiful new theatre, assures one that folks of this vicinity are going to be priviledged to enjoy top entertainment in the theatre world. Besides being beautiful, the new establishment boasts installation of newly perfected sound and projection equipment which is absolutely the finest produced. A fresh air heating and cooling plant is now in operation.

The new theatre was named in a community-wide contest. “Palo” was chosen because it was considered easiest to remember and pronounce. It also has significance, as it ties in the given names of the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Byrnes, Pa-t and Lo-retta.

The year 1875 given for this photo is obviously incorrect. The photo is most likely from the 1980s.
