The history of United Palace, Manhattan’s 4th largest theatre and now a landmarked building, began in 1930, when it was then one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres” across the boroughs and New Jersey. Designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb (Cort Theatre, the former Ziegfeld Theatre) with interiors overseen by decorative specialist Harold Rambusch (Waldorf Astoria, Radio City Music Hall), it was one of the region’s premier vaudeville and movie houses. Today, the United Palace is a transformational venue that fuses culture, spirituality and entertainment.
United Palace provides free public tours every second Sunday of the month. Tours are capped at 30 people, so RSVP is required. Each visitor will receive a free pin that celebrates Lin-Manuel Miranda’s contributions to Movies at the Palace. Learn more about the United Palace here.
