The Palace Theatre was built as a silen cinema in 1922. It was later owned by MCM Theatres, which also operated the Fain Theatre, later the Tropic Theatre, in downtown Leesburg. It closed during the early-1960’s. Today the seats have been removed, but most of the rest of the house is still present, including the stage.

The building on the left appears to be the Palace in the 1920s:

I was in the Palace today. It is being remodeled to be a dance studio, and the floor has been leveled. The stage is being kept, and the owner is doing a beautiful job of restoration, including the installation of period light fixtures.
