Palace Theater still working on conversion

palacetheaterMarcus and Bea Monroe, two hometown folks from Colorado City, moved back here and opened the Palace Theater in July of 2007. And since that time, the theater has shown hundreds of films to moviegoers in town, providing a source of entertainment for citizens in Mitchell County.
Back in 2013, the Monroes announced that in order for the theater to continue operating, a great deal of money was needed to convert from film to digital. The companies that distribute movies to theaters are going to all-digital formats, and available titles on films are becoming fewer and harder to find.
“This was a fulfilment of a 20-year dream,” Monroe said, speaking of the time when he and his wife bought the old theater. “It closed when I was in the 7th grade, and I told my friends that one day I would reopen it. Now our dream is threatened.”
