Palace Theater, Crossville, TN

My sons and I spent one Spring Break in a cabin at Cumberland Mountain State Park near Crossville, Tennessee. We went into town one evening to see what was up, and we came upon this gorgeous theatre sign lit.

The Palace opened in 1938 as a first-run movie theater. It operated that way until 1978 when growing competition forced it to close. It was restored in the early 2000s to be a community center and event venue.

    I do love those old neon signs. You should visit the neon sign boneyard near Las Vegas. It’s full of those old beauties. Of course, they don’t work anymore, though many used to hang in front of places that got torn down and replaced by shiny new hotels, casinos, etc. Lots of the famous places are long gone. In Vegas, nothing’s a sure bet but change. O where are you now, Sands…Stardust…Landmark…?
