Act II: A Grand Restoration


The Historic Palace Theatre is one year into our Act II: A Grand Restoration. This past fall, we completed our first phase of our Act II A: Grand Restoration. During this phase we renovated our outer lobby, box office and will call area, as well as restored all interior paint & plaster to prepare for decorative painting this coming summer. Our Act II Committee is diligently working on our Phase II plans, which will be completed this coming fall. During Phase II we will be renovating the inner lobby, concession stand, bar and merchandise area, as well as completing all detail painting in the main part of the theatre.

Through Phase 1, we have raised over 1. 5 million dollars through the generous support of community members and grant funding. With that being said, we still have a long way to go to complete all of our goals for this Act II: Grand Restoration Campaign. From its conception in 1925, the Palace Theatre has been "A Palace For Everyone", and we are dedicated to ensuring that this gem remains in all its glory for decades to come.
