I always enjoy attending events in this theater. So glad it was saved and not torn down like many theaters of this age. Saw a Jim Brinkman concert here on New Year's Eve.

From the marquee to the original 1926 Kilgen pipe organ, it's a wonderful restored theatre in downtown Canton. Whether you're seeing a movie, concert or play, there isn't a bad seat in the house. The clouds and stars which grace the ceiling are a must see. So comfortable, yet there is so much character in the antique fixtures and grand... More

This is my most favorite place in Canton. I love it. It's a beautiful old theatre with a lot of history. The organ is original and fantastic. There are stars on the ceiling. A must see.

Having never visited Canton before, everything was a new experience. The theatre was great! I loved the old charm and original fixtures. We came in late at a break between artists, the only downside was that the bar was right where you enter and made it a little hard to get through. Other than that, all the associates I ran... More

The Canton Palace Theatre is a beautifully renovated theatre in downtown Canton located on Market Ave. N., in Canton, Ohio. A little bit of nostalgia for those of us who have lived here for over a half a century! Movies, special attractions and concerts have been held at this venue. If you are visiting Canton anytime in the future, take... More

Have been going to this theater for the last 25 years. Nothing else like it in the area. Gorgeous architecture and comfortable seats.

This late 1920's movie "Palace" was built by a successful local businessman as a gift to the locals and like many such vintage facilities was more or less run into the ground after 50+ years. Thankfully local visionaries beginning in the 1980's preserved what remained (much) and revamped what was lacking. The sky ceiling and other period features provide a... More

Went to see Vicki Lawrence this past summer. Charming theater but I struggled to hear. The audio was terrible.

We are sorry to hear that you had a less than stellar experience, but the good news is that our sound system has been upgraded to an HD system, and more speakers have been added throughout the theatre. We hope to see you back in the theatre soon for a better experience! More

I've been here for several fun events, including Stooge Fest, Ingrid Michaelson, and last year's fantastic silent movie, Phantom of the Opera, with organ accompaniment. I will continue to support this place whenever I can because it is a piece of history that I want my kids to enjoy as they get older. A classic movie experience.
