The Palace Theatre is one very notable cornerstone in Albany's growing downtown entertainment destinations. A concert & theatrical entertainment facility in the heart of Albany, New York , it first opened its doors in October 1931.

Built during the Depression, the Palace was the largest theatre in a city already noted for a number of other opulent movie houses. Today, the Palace Theatre remains the sole survivor of this period of entertainment and continues to make history with a widely diverse offering of popular acts and cultural events.
