Built in 1914 by Henry Charles Trost as the Alhambra Theater, the Moorish style movie theatre was opened August 1, 1914 with “Nero and Brittannicus” on the screen and vaudeville on the stage. It was renamed the Palace Theatre on November 6, 1920 reopening with Gloria Swanson in “Something to Think About”.
After decades showing movies, by 1968 it ended its days as an adult movie theatre as the Palace Adult Theatre which closed on August 30, 1984 with Pamela Mann in “Unthinkable” & Carol Connors in “Desires for Men”. In July 1986 until 1990 it became a live music venue named Palace Theatre. It was renovated and reopened on August 2, 2000 as the Xscape, an upscale nightclub. Since then it has had several names including The Zone and Blu.
