With 2,400 seats, the Palace Burlesk was a very impressive theater when it open its doors in 1914. The Palace cost half a million dollars to build, and it was mixed movie theater and vaudeville-type performance venue. In the 1930s the Palace started to run a double feature format, but by the end of the 1930s the theater featured two movies and an "ice cream wrestling" interlude: in one and a half tons of ice cream. The Palace Burlesk was demolished in the 1950s to make room for a parking lot.
