MCTI is located in the old Palace Theatre which is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1900’s, silent movies and vaudeville acts were presented at the Theatre followed by “talkies” (aka movies) when they became popular. The theatre closed in 1970 and was later used as a wrestling arena. In 1983 MCTI purchased the establishment and converted it into a stage performance theatre. In 1998 the theatre underwent major renovations to become a true fine arts facility. They present four quality productions each year, consisting of musicals, comedies, drama, children’s plays and much more.
Most recently, MCTI has renovated the building adjacent to the theatre and created an intimate space for dinner theatres and cabaret-style shows. Be on the lookout for more information on this new avenue of theatrical expression!
In addition, courtesy of the Greenville Tourism Commission, a replica of the original Palace Theatre Marquee has been added to the building complete with neon lighting. The picture in the upper right hand corner features the new marquee with a Greenville resident’s restored classic car. It is truly a sight to behold!
