Designed in the spirit of France’s Palais de Versailles, the 2,827-seat Palace Theatre is located at the base of the LeVeque Tower on Broad Street. Adorned with a chandelier, grand staircase, mural, hall of autographed pictures, and fountain, the Palace is a delightful destination for an evening with the arts. Originally a vaudeville house, special attention was paid to the theatre’s acoustics when it was built. Consequently, there’s not a bad seat in the house!
During the '30s, '40s, and '50s, the Palace Theatre was the most active theatre in Columbus for live performances. Still a popular venue today, the theatre rarely has a dark night. Among the many events showcased are CAPA presentations, Broadway in Columbus performances, and a variety of national, international, and local artists.
