The Greatest Show on Earth at the Palace

According to Snyder Daily News, Mr. and Mrs. T.L. Lola opened the Palace Theatre in 1926 and on June 29, 1929, they introduced talking pictures to Snyder and Scurry County. Film Daily Year Book 1928 lists the Palace Theatre with 650 seats.

In April 1954 the Daily News reported that all five Snyder theatres were back in the hands of the Lola family. The Lollars were the owners and former operators of the Ritz Theatre, Aztec Theatre, Palace Theatre, Texas Theatre, and Starlite Theatre, which had been operated by Snyder Theatres, Inc. since 1951.

While still showing movies, but not yet open for the day, the Palace Theatre was destroyed by fire on April 9, 1966.
