Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Art Deco style Palace Theater was originally built in the 1920’s to serve the town of Weed, current population 2,978. Since 2001 it has been home to Sylvia Massy Shivy’s Radio Star Studios, which offers a “unique recording experience for performing musicians”.

Sylvia has created a fully functioning live music venue and studio from the old Palace Theater and has recorded and mixed songs for such artists as Tom Petty, R.E.M., and Johnny Cash.

Oh, there should probably also be an aka of Palace Theatre. The only reference to the name I can find comes from the May, 1985, issue of Boxoffice, which refers to “…Main Street Amusement’s Palace Theatre in Weed, Calif….” but there might be old ads or listings confirming the name somewhere. I’ll be on the lookout for them.

As Joe mentioned, this was also known as the Palace Theater. Here is a 1986 photo.
