Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

The Palace was built in 1913 as a vaudeville house, then a silent movie theatre going to sound in 1930. It features tin ceiling and wall panels. The third and current owner, Vern Reynolds, has painstakenly restored this theatre to its original look. The auditorium seats 300 on the main level with 75 in the balcony. Room for the concession stand was made by removing a small barber shop next door in the same building. There is evidence of the original dressing rooms in the basement under the screen.
