Palace Theatre

The Historic Palace Theatre

Community Auditorium, Meeting & Information Center

Malena Fisher


The Palace theatre opened in November of 1938 and played an important part in the lives of many people and the community. The Palace is fully restored now and is a multi-use community auditorium and visitors’ center. Originally the Palace was intended to be an entertainment center and we have stayed true to that historic vision, featuring live entertainment in variety of musical styles. We host concerts of Jazz, Blues, Country, Bluegrass and Rock just to name a few. The Palace provided the public with a distraction from everyday life to the public during the difficult war years and still provides a high quality “something to do” for fun seekers of all ages in the Crossville, Cumberland Plateau and the East TN area. Our newly renovated auditorium and premium sound system ensure that you will enjoy whatever show you see here.

   Still, the Palace Theatre is not only what it used to be, it is much more. The Palace is also a wonderfully functional community center, meeting hall and multi-media facility, suitable for sales or training presentations, committee meetings or even regional trade shows. If you need a centrally located place to hold your seminars or professional classes, The Palace has the projectors for your PowerPoint presentation, as well as a concession stand for class breaks or lunch and the friendly staff to support ALL your training needs. If your business needs a larger area, for large scale lectures or awards ceremonies, the auditorium itself, can be utilized in conjunction with some of the other common areas to give your business function plenty of room and a professional atmosphere. 

Some of our other benefits include:

  • Professional sound system
  • Theatre class lighting
  • A newly acquired Baby Grand Piano
  • Acoustic surfacing
  • Full Kitchen
  • Pleasant, well lit café
  • Internet connectivity and Wireless
     The Palace does hold regular functions, but our schedule is quite flexible and we will do everything in our power to accommodate you and your needs. And remember, we don’t just serve Crossville, we serve Cumberland County, the Cumberland Plateau and the whole of the East Tennessee area. The Palace Theatre can entertain you AND support your business or municipality.
