Russ Shaner, president of the Rochester Theater Organ Society has dug up another incredible photo of Rochester’s RKO Palace Theater…
This color photo shows the theater’s front entrance in September 1965. A sign has just been hung on the theater’s marquee proclaiming this the new site of a $10,000,000 “Twin Towers” project. As The Rochesterian had earlier quoted from an old RTOS brochure:
Of course the Palace Theater was demolished, but no $10 Million project ever materialized. Promises, promises.
