We see shows here often. Its a great space, beautiful in the old tradition and decent acoustics for classical. The only downside was that it was too cold.

My wife and I attended a Jennifer Nettles show at the Palace Theater last month. It was my second time attending a show here and it met our expectations. The lobby area isn't overly large, but is adequate. The food booths are predictably expensive, the bathrooms are average. The line for the women's room was a little bit ridiculous, but... More

JCM outstanding! Excellent seats! Excellent voice! Excellent band! Excellent dancing! Venue needs more security. Poor control over pot smokers and obnoxious guests. Embarrassing that JCM had to tolerate it.

The Palace Theater is a true gem in the city of Albany. It's been through extensive renovations in recent years and it's got all the glam of when it was first constructed and yet the seats are very comfortable and there almost no obstructed views anywhere in the house. You really feel Like you are stepping back in time as... More

Just caught Bonnie Raitt at the Palace. A stellar show in a beautiful venue. Acoustics are terrific, we could hear every word in the balcony.

Saw STYX at the Palace just last month. Had an easy drive in and found ample parking. Admission flowed smoothly with nothing but the friendliest staff to help out. Still in awe at how beautiful the Palace has been maintained after all these years, keeping the old theatre period alive and well. The foyer balcony is so pretty and a... More
