A Touch of France
Designed in the spirit of France’s Palais de Versailles, the 2,827-seat Palace Theatre is located at the base of the LeVeque Tower on Broad Street. Adorned with a chandelier, grand staircase, a mural, a hall of autographed pictures, and a fountain, the Palace is a delightful destination for an evening of the arts. Originally a vaudeville house, special attention was paid to the theatre’s acoustics when it was built--consequently, there’s not a bad seat in the house!
A Community Treasure
During the '30s, '40s, and '50s, the Palace Theatre was the most active live show theatre in Columbus. Still a popular venue today, the theatre rarely has a dark night. Among the many events showcased are CAPA concerts, performances of the Broadway Across America—Columbus, special events, and several local community events and shows.
