(range: 7 miles)
Through the generosity of the State of Connecticut and $35 million dollars, the doors of the Palace Theater opened once again to the public on November 12, 2004. All of the grandeur, originally designed by period architect Thomas Lamb, is what is described as a Renaissance Revival style, featuring an eclectic mix of Greek, Roman, Arabic and Federal motifs. Boasting grand lobby spaces and ornate dome ceilings, the Palace Theater provides a palatial setting fit for a king – but intended for the people of Waterbury. (This excerpt taken from the Palace Theater website)
