Just went for the taste of home cooking school night. Have been here many times for the first Friday free movies. It's a beautiful old theater and has the old organ play before the movies and then drop down. The ceiling is cool with fake clouds circling around and stars. The old architecture is neat with lots of extra frills.

It's a nice, small venue that seems to be maintained well. The seats were comfortable. The ladies' room was fairly clean, but I was told that someone had vomited on the floor of the men's room and it hadn't been cleaned up - and this was well before the concert even started. We were in the fourth row and were... More

My daughter participates in the Canton Ballet Nutcracker performances. The staff at the Canton Palace Theater are amazing and so helpful when finding your seats. They escort you so that you know just where you are going. They are efficient and always smiling. The inside of the theater is beautiful and truly an historical landmark.

The Palace is a great place to see a concert, there's not a bad seat. It was an amazing place for a wedding. I love the restored interior, the clouds on the ceiling are beautiful. It's one the gems of Canton!!!!

I absolutely love the Canton Palace Theatre ! It is historical, economical and beautiful ! I went there as a little girl and saw The Sound of Music. I never forgot it. Life goes on, I moved away from North Canton for 33 years. When I came back I saw a few things and always loved being in the theatre... More

Loved the memories of the old theaters. Has been restored beautifully to it's original glory. Pipe organ that rises from the stage and someone actually plays it. The sound is gorgeous. Has a balcony and main floor seating. Small and quaint in comparison to today's mega theaters. No recliners and seating is a bit tight. Enjoy a different evening out!

If you are in Canton and like movies or dance you need to see this place! It's a fully restored 1920s theater that's designed as a Roman amphitheater only completely indoors. The ornate decor is enough reason to go, but then you see the ceiling which is designed to be the nighttime sky with moving clouds, birds and stars. Kids... More

This is a beautiful site, with scrolling clouds in the ceiling and a historic organ on a rising platform. None of that would really matter, though, if the staff didn't always seem so happy to be there. The organist may be the happiest man I have ever seen when he's playing. The ushers all clearly love being there. When I... More

Historic theater where you step back in time with an atmosphere of yesteryear. Unlike todays cinemas this place is a theater with a balcony and band pit. Weekly movies and special events are held here. The popcorn is awsome.

Do not miss a trip to this theater, whether it is for an art film, a Hollywood hit movie, a concert or show, the ballet, etc... For perspective, it is an Eberson atmospheric theater in style of Spanish courtyard. Make sure to look up at the ceiling. And look for the giraffes in the arch. They harken to the financier... More
