I think it's location is interesting. We love the location as we can grab a bite to eat before or afterwards. And Hubby and I can make a night of it afterwards at 4th street and stay at the Brown hotel. Kinda like a mini vacation. Also love that it appeals to adults and children. Such a great venue!

One of the greatest of John Eberson’s theaters and considered to be “the finest Theater in the South” when opened on September 1, 1928, as the Loew’s United Artists Theater. The original seating capacity was for 3,273. From around 1950, it had been renamed Loew’s Palace Theater. Brooke L.

There are statues of twelve historical figures repeated throughout the theater: Apollo, Bach, Beethoven, Dante, Handel, Listz, Moliere, Mozart, Schubert, Shakespeare, Socrates and Wagner.

Even though we've been there several times, I've never thought about the theater being L-shaped. It doesn't seem like it has 2700 seats either. It feels more intimate than that. My prom was held there in 1999.

I was shocked to find out that they sale alcohol there. Course I found that out when my family of 5 (with no child) went last Sunday night to see Prarie Home Companion. Then I also saw that when I looked it up on their site.

Although I have never been to the louisville palace, the pictures look amazing and have heard that some musicians have recorded live performances there.

Its uncommon appearance has made it a popular venue for musicians to record live performances (including Third Day & Alison Krauss). The theatre features an array of popular movies, old and new, as well as concerts by popular artists.
