Oh she's a grand old Dame! Age and beauty best describes this venue. Grand staircases, balconies, architecture, molding, and chandeliers. Sure there is some visible repair work that is not on the same scale as the original builder. It's still worth taking a moment before...More

Nice night. Beautiful theater and great shows. The venue is small and there is difficulty with restrooms and Concessions. Most importantly - NEVER park in adjacent garage. It will take an hour to get out.

I enjoy all the events hosted by the Palace. I love the atmosphere and scenery and the ambience regardless of the entertainment!

The Palace is one of the cities landmarks. Whatever event that's featured is worth attending. Not a bad seat in the house and the accustics are the best for sound.

The Palace Theater is undergoing an amazing renovation to bring it back to it's original beauty and character. The acoustics are great, and the lovely interior is stunning.

I think just about every city in the midwest that built a theater in the roaring 20s named it some kind of palace. I know of at least two that still survive, this one and one only 60 miles north in Marion, so make sure...More

The seating is designed for CHILDREN. Three days after the event my knees and back still hurt. I'm tall but slender. Couldn't really enjoy the show because of the discomfort. Won't be going back there regardless of the event. Think before you go.

I took my daughter here to see "Roctopia". The show was great, but the rows are so close together there's no legroom to even cross your legs (and I'm 5' 5", so not tall at all)! If we return I'll be sure to get a...More
