"Movies at the Palace: Our Favorites From Warner Bros." take place at the stunning United Palace, formerly the Loew's 175th Street Theatre, which opened in 1930 as a deluxe movie theatre and vaudeville house, now celebrating its 90th anniversary. Purchased by the United Palace of Spiritual Arts in 1969, today we are “the Home of Spiritual Artistry,” and we honor our past by reinventing the movie-going experience, pairing screenings with pre-show entertainment and expert Q&A’s.
