Palace Theatre

The Greenwall Theatre opened in 1903. It had been renamed Palace Theatre by 1920 with Bijou Amusement Company doing a remodel on the theatre in the-1940’s. The theatre seated 1,014. It was located on Dauphine Street at Iberville Street. This was an African American Theatre.

The theatre closed in the early-1960’s and has since been demolished.

The theater’s site is now occupied by a parking garage, but the the skybridge, partially visible at the left, connecting the building behind the theater to one across the street is still there though refaced.

According to this source: View link opened in 1903 as the Greenwall. Also “Orpheum” appears on the marquee; I wonder if at one time it was part of the Orpheum Circuit of vaudeville houses.
