Lorain Palace Theatre, Lorain

#126 of 211 in Nightlife in Ohio
Theater · Concert / Show
In the town of Lorain, Ohio, located just west of Cleveland, the 1,720-seat Lorain Palace Theatre first opened in 1928. It was the first motion picture theater in Ohio to show a talking motion picture. The opening night film, and first talky played in Ohio was a pre-release of Paramount’s "Something Always Happens" starring Neil Hamilton and Esther Ralston. Today it serves as a community Civic Center, movie theatre, meeting place and entertainment facility. The crystal chandelier, Wurlitzer pipe organ (one of only four remaining in theaters across Ohio), and two spacious loges are just some of the features which made this building worthy of being preserved.

  • A great historic venue that brings you back to a time of class and elegance. Plenty of seats and a larger venue. Very artistic and eclectic inside. Restoration is amazing! Highly recommend anyone from out of town to schedule a chance to look inside.
