The Palace Theatre was the largest in the city when it opened in 1931, presenting vaudeville acts and feature films. The theater, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has retained most of its original design features, and underwent renovations in 2002 and 2003, bringing aspects such as the building's marquee back to the original design.

The Palace has hosted a variety of live performances, including the Albany Symphony Orchestra, the Rolling Stones, and Roy Orbison, as well as theater productions and city-sponsored events.
