Opened on September 6, 1928, this 1,999 seat theater features a classically designed auditorium with a long oval lobby with Corinthian columns and a nice balustrade, and a large Carrera marble statue. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.
It was triplexed some years back in an effort to stay alive(orchestra divided down the middle, balcony walled off into separate screen).
Sadly, it closed in 1995, but in 2008, the owner Joe DaSilva announced plans to renovate and reopen a restored Palace Theatre as a single-screen venue for performing arts and movies.
To this end, significant initial renovations were done - repainting in lobbies, auditorium seats cleaned, and new carpeting installed in time for the Palace Theatre to host a portion of the Connecticut Film Festival in May 2008.
Further renovations will come as it is restored into a single-screen venue for performing arts and movies.
