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.

In 2012 The Palace was voted the number one historic theater in the country and I think it is a fitting honor. At 100 years old, The Palace is showing it's age a bit but that should not deter you from catching a show. This year the theater is scheduled to be repainted and that should bring it up to... More

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

My husband and I live in Manchester and we have brought many of our visitors out for a show at the Palace. We have never been disappointed, lovely place!

The building has been used for 99 years. They are raising money to pay for repainting the interior so it will look as it did in 1915. The volunteer ushers were polite and charming. Though the performance of A Chorus Line was rather workmanlike, the overall experience was very pleasant.

Have been here hundreds of times for a wide variety of events... theatre, opera, concerts, and more. This most recent visit was a benefit for a wonderful musician who'd been through some trying health challenges. The venue always looks inviting and classy. Volunteers are always cordial and knowledgeable. Seats and atmosphere are comfortable. This theatre is a true classic gem...... More

Ordered tickets online, and the pick-up process was really easy! The drink lines were a little crazy, but seemed to be moving. The theater is well maintained, and harks back to a simpler time. The seats were designed for Americans that were a little thinner (early 1900's)... But did not seem to cause any problems for our generation!
