This Theatre is Gutted. No Ceiling, no nothing really. Just a shell. The Marquee is still there tho. If you go to the back, you can ‘peek’ in to see the inside. You can still see the balcony section. Or what is left of it. I took some pictures of the Theatre. I’ll try to send some……

DriveInTheatre2001’s comment above and both of the photo links by Don Lewis pertain to the original Palace Theatre, later the Buckaroo Theatre, at 112 W. Walker.

This photo on the Buckaroo’s photo page shows the distinctive parapet of the National Theatre at the right, The marquee of the Palace, formerly the Alhambra, a couple of doors down, and, in the distance, the marquee of the Buckaroo, formerly the first Palace.

A color photo on the Buckaroo’s page shows the street from the other end, with the Buckaroo nearest, and the second Palace in the next block, though it’s difficult to make out the National/Regal.

The Alhambra Theatre is last listed in the FDY in 1929, with 500 seats. In 1930, the Palace is the only theater listed in Breckenridge, but it has gone from the 350 seats it had in the 1920s to 546 seats. Depending on when the 1930 FDY was compiled, the Palace must have moved to the Alhambra’s building in late 1929 or very early 1930. By 1931 the seating capacity of the Palace has gone to 536, where it remains thereafter.
