The Palace Theatre
There’s a secret mural above The Palace Theatre’s orchestra pit. It’s hidden under layers of paint, as were two other pieces that now stand revealed after a careful restoration. That’s one of the many mysterious features that gives the space its charm, a uniquely quirky flair which has been preserved through the multiple phases that have helped restore its former glory.
Opened in 1926 as the Manos Theatre, the venue’s modern iteration dazzles eyes and playbills with distinctive original fixtures including candle chandeliers, Grecian marble, and black-and-white tile floors. Recent renovations have replicated the theater’s original opera boxes, and added more contemporary touches such as a two-level audience lounge. And the glittering decor is matched by the wattage of star power on stage—recent performers have included Dream Theater, Cyndi Lauper, America, Michael McDonald, Blue Man Group, and Stomp.
