Connor Palace

1615 Euclid Avenue

The last of the four principal PlayhouseSquare theaters (and the most expensive to build at $3,500,000), the Palace Theatre, renamed Connor Palace in 2014, opened Nov. 6, 1922 as the flagship of B.F. Keith’s vaudeville chain. The sign atop its building advertising the Connor Palace was “the world’s largest electrical sign” circa 1921. The Connor Palace’s elegant lobby was highlighted by a million-dollar art collection and another “world’s largest”…the largest woven-in-one-piece carpet. The venue showcased the likes of Fanny Brice, Bing Crosby, Houdini, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and The Three Stooges before changing over to films. In its current role as a “legit theater,” the Connor Palace seats 2,800.
