This is just a beautiful "old school" historic theatre. We had the pleasure of experiencing the Palace on a recent visit to see Lewis Black. Parking is available close by, the restrooms are fairly spacious and ample, and there is surprisingly ample legroom and seating...More

Retro Classic Theater. Really cool to see a concert or a movie. Very easy to get to by car. Easy in and easy out. Restaurants nearby. Plenty of parking.

Last night we went to the Palace Theatre to see an original play, Find Your Way Home, an Irish musical. We were able to obtain second row seats and enjoyed the play. The Palace also provides free parking at the Quackenbush Garage, always a plus.

The Palace theater has been going through a refurbishing and is looking terrific. The events they have are first class and the staff is always very nice

I would totally feel safe. Especially during a concert or performance because lots of people are around.

Both. If you're going after regular business hours, parking is relatively easy to find. There is a garage that is less than a five minute walk away.
