Built in 1940, the Palace Theatre in Grapevine was originally created as a movie theater and showed movies for over thirty years.
In the 1970’s, the theater was renovated to host the Grapevine Opry and did so into the 1980’s. In 1986, the theater caught fire and the stage and most of the box seating areas were destroyed.
With walls starting to crumble, the Palace Theatre was completely renovated again in 1999 by the Grapevine Heritage Foundation. The now 439 seat Palace is home to the Grapevine Opry every Saturday night and many other live events throughout the year.
Next door to the Palace Theatre is historic Buckner Cash Grocery Building (ca. 1930) which has been transformed as an additional performance and meeting facility accommodating up to 180 for a noon luncheon program and 200 for an in-the-round theatrical performance in the evening.
These two entertainment centers are now called Palace Theatre Arts Center and preserve much of the entertainment history of downtown Grapevine.
