Palace Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theater, or more properly, its shell, appears to be in the process of renovation. The facade is yellow brick with a red tile roof and black and white tiles at street level. The building has been completely gutted; with the screen, seats and roof removed. Unfortunately the renovator is none too bright, and the outdoor booth has been torn out and replaced with some cruddy French doors. The vertical has been fully restored, and is an almost psychedelic Plains Indian design.

This theater received a grant from the Texas Historical Commission for $15,000.00, I beleive, to replace the roof. Is the ticket booth not hidden behind the french doors?

If you compare the photo posted on ¼/05 with this photo, there does appear to be some renovation going on:

This theatre seen in the 1984 photo was once a cute theatre with ticket kios, vertical marquee and what appears to be a vitrolite exterior. What’s the latest on this one?

On the Don Lewis post of 4/8/09 Seth Gaines mentions beneath a photo that the marquee has been restored, but the ticket kios was destroyed!?!

Now see the restored marquee, but no restored ticket kios thanks to Lost Memory’s posted photo of December 28, 2007.

A fine restoration job was done on the marquee, but to remove the ticket kios was a major blunder,imo.

Interesting photo with the black night sky, the brightly lighted new marquee and the boarded up door…next door somewhere in Texas!
