The Palace Theatre opened in 1913, as a vaudeville theater, and later switched over to movies. It was wired for sound in 1930.
In 1935, it was purchased by Ed & Vivian Hahn on their wedding day. They operated it until September 17, 1997, when it was purchased by Vern & Christine Reynolds. Vern Reynolds is the sole current operator, operating as Reynolds Theatres. The theatre has been beautifully restored and renovated to its original appearance. A next-door barber shop was converted into a larger concession area.
The Palace Theatre contains its original tin ceiling and features a 75 seat balcony, with seating for 300 on the main floor.
On June 5, 2010, the town and theatre was hit by a tornado and is in the process of being restored. The theatre will seat on the main floor 234, and the balcony will be reduced to 45 seats. Reopening date will be June 1, 2011.
This rare single-screen movie house is one of the gems of charming downtown Elmwood.
