    I remember going to the Palace Theater in 1953 or 1954 (I was only 3 or 4 at the time). The 2nd Ave El was long gone by then.

    My grandmother and my mother and my aunt and uncles used to go to the Palace in the 1930’s. I remember the Palace myself (I was born in ’42)–I once saw a movie poster featuring Nelson Eddy and Jeannette MacDonald in the window.
