Item 299C. Palace Theater Marquee (May 14, 1949)
Vaudeville Reopens
Built in 1913 by Martin Beck, the Palace Theater became synonymous with vaudeville.
 Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Douglas Fairbanks, Will Rogers, Sophie Tucker and the Marx Brothers
 were among the big acts to perform on its stage. For almost twenty years the Palace Theater distinguished
 itself as the top variety house in the country until 1932 when vaudeville's colorful era came to an end.
 But many were hopeful that the new opening would serve as vaudeville's revival.
