The Palace Theatre, which opened in 1915, was once located around the corner from the now-closed Loew’s Pitkin Theatre. The Loew’s Palace Theatre was equipped with a Moller 3 manual 16 rank theatre pipe organ. In 1918, alterations to the interior were carried out by architect Thomas Lamb. Loew’s operated the Palace Theatre until 1955.
Story has it, that it didn’t have air conditioning which forced its early retirement from the movies. It was taken over by an independent to be used as a Yiddish theatre, but this was a short lived venture and it retrned to movies, operated by the Island Theatre Circuit, closing in 1969. Demolished in the 1980’s after the roof caved in.
