Information for this tour was contributed by Ed Buchinski.
The Palace was the first theater built by Souderton PA Architect, Jerome S Landes. In 1922, his second, the Broad Theatre in Souderton PA opened, and in 1924 his Grand Theater in East Greenville opened.
Only the Grand remains in operation.
The Palace has been home of Dimmig Appliance since its closing sometime in the late 1950s. The appliance store has many old posters to celebrate the life that the building once supported. The Palace and the Broad were both located less than a block on the same railroad line, the Reading Railroad Bethelehem - Philadelphia line.
The Palace and Broad theaters were extremely similar in appearance, size, and design.
