We have attended many events at the Palace and each time has been a wonderful experience. The facility is very old but well maintained. Parking is convenient at a nearby parking garage.

Nice old theatre. The usher are very kind and greeting. My mix tape 80's was an amazing show. The seats are really small.

Good place for a graduation. Beautiful historic venue. Sound system was excellent. Very impressive. Comfortable seats, but sloped floor was slippery.
