The Palace was built in 1911 as the third home of the Orpheum vaudeville circuit in Los Angeles. After 15 years, the Orpheum moved to its final location at Ninth and Broadway in 1926.
The theater's exterior exhibits an Italian influence while the theater's interior is distinctly French. The original capacity was nearly 2000 seats, but the wide design of the auditorium with two balconies gave everyone a close seat to the stage. The original box seats were removed in the 1930s and replaced with murals.
The Palace was purchased by Gilmore Associates in 2000 and is now a venue for special events and as a film location.
