The Palace Theatre was located on 9th Street or today known as James Brown Boulevard. It was opened by 1921, and first operated as a Vaudeville house, catering to the African-American community. It sorta went down in pieces and this African-American theatre like her sister the Lennox Theatre is no more. For the longest time the back of the theatre, the stage and fly area stood intact, but recently it has all been razed.
Located close to downtown Augusta, it was near, even though on a back street, to the Imperial Theatre, Dreamland Theatre, Modjeska Theatre and the Miller Theatre. It took a newspaper article to make me aware of the Palace Theatre. I had never heard of this theatre and it was right in town.
