An Evening with Groucho stars award-winning Groucho Marx impersonator Frank Ferrante in a rollicking evening that pays tribute to the bespectacled and mustachioed master of wit. Slinging out Groucho one-liners, anecdotes, and classic tunes such as “Lydia the Tattooed Lady,” Ferrante creates a comedic experience accessible to die-hard Groucho fans and Marx Brothers novices alike. With several moments of ad-libbing and audience engagement, as well as an onstage pianist to provide a little mood music and play a few cuts from Groucho’s solo techno-folk album, the performance paints a precise portrayal of the legendary comedian. The show runs at a fast-paced 90 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission. Call ahead for showtime availability.
An old-fashioned marquee illuminates the entrance to the Palace Theater, its scarlet and gold light beaming just as brightly as when the venue first opened in 1922. Back then, it was a 1,300-seat neighborhood movie theater with a second-floor dine and dance ballroom. That was owner Alfred Dibella's vision, and when he passed away in 1959, he made sure the theater landed safely in the hands of his daughter, Frances.
Today, the Palace remains a family heirloom. Much like a dubstep remix of the Gettysburg Address, the current space is a mixture of modern technology and vintage appeal, retaining its architectural integrity despite updates over the years. Perhaps the biggest change has been Palace's transformation from a single-screen movie house into a multi-use event space, capable of hosting everything from rehearsal dinners to graduation ceremonies.
Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 9 locations lighting 46 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939?a time when movies were called ?picture shows,? Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
