The Palace Theater is located in the center of the state of
Connecticut, 100 East Main Street, Waterbury – 35 miles from each state
border and conveniently located off I-84 and Route 8. The Palace
Theater is a culture and tourist attraction as a historic venue
recently renovated as part of a $200 million economic redevelopment
project for the City of Waterbury and the State of Connecticut. Through
the generosity of the State of Connecticut and $35 million dollars, the
doors of the Palace Theater opened once again to the public on November
12, 2004, with all the grandeur originally designed by period architect
Thomas Lamb, in what is described as a Renaissance Revival style,
featuring an eclectic mix of Greek, Roman, Arabic and Federal motifs.
Boasting grand lobby spaces and ornate dome ceilings, the Palace
Theater provides a palatial setting fit for a king - but intended for
the people of Waterbury.
