News About This Theater
Opened September 2, 1926, as the Manos Theatre, it was built in a Neo-Renaissance style, complete with marble imported from Greece for the lobby walls, murals in the main auditorium, decorative plasterwork and elegant crystal chandeliers. By 1941, the Manos Theatre was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.
After a long life as a movie house, the Manos Theatre was reopened in 1991 as the Palace Theatre Center for the Performing Arts and has been in the midst of a three phase restoration project which will bring the theater back to its original beauty.
The Palace Theatre is noteworthy for its gorgeous lightbulb-lit marquee, with a sunrise motif, and the theater’s name in blazing neon underneath.
Since its reopening, the Palace Theatre has hosted perfomances by celebrities from Bill Cosby to Bernadette Peters on its stage, and also is home to local organizations like the Greensburg Civic Theater, the Laurel Ballet, and the Westmoreland County Choral Society.
