I think the Palace Theatre (or the Manhattan Theatre) opened before 1930. “The Grip of Evil” was released in 1916, “The Exploits of Elaine” was released in 1914, and “The Yellow Menace” was released in 1916. All silent films, of course.

I also think the Manhattan Theatre and the Palace Theatre were two different venues. The intersection of Church Street and Nicholson Street is a long way from 629 E. Brambleton Avenue. I think there is some confusion with these two theatres.
