Movies, comedy acts, musicals... you name it, they can do it. The "Palace" theatre has been lovingly renovated to pristine shape of yesteryear. Plush seating and excellent audio system allows you not only to sit in comfort but also hear and visualize the entertainment provided.

The Palace Theater has become an integral part of the downtown area, and has become a home for movies, concerts, comedy shows, & more. The place is well-maintained and kept clean. The service here is great, and it's for a good value, given what is...More
