MARION, OH â€" Sunday, October 25 at 3 p.m. the Palace’s mighty Wurlitzer organ fills the theatre as world renowned organist Dennis James accompanies the classic silent film “The Cat and the Canary.”

Several years ago I traveled to see the Palace in Canton Ohio and didn’t continue onto Marion Ohio to see this Palace though I do see similar simaliarities in the above posted flickr photo. Is that a tongue twister? Didn’t mean to it to be! ;–)

I returned to the Palace on April 3, 2010 and saw the movie, Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief. I can only add, “This is how movies should be shown” I bought a good size drink and popcorn for a grand total of $3.00. The lobby of the Harding Hotel (now a Senior’s home and directly across the street from the thatre) is also a must see.

Richard G: I, too, have visited the Palace in Canton though didn’t see the Harding Hotel lobby…sounds like I missed a “must see”.

The view of the marquee and upright is now a little bare. During an inspection the facade holding both the marquee and upright was found to be unstable and both were removed and repaired while the facade was torn down brick by brick, the large I-beams replaced and will be restored to original build. Donations would be appreciated. marionpalace.org for contact information.
