The Palace Theater was one of seven theaters located in downtown Mason City.
In the early 1930's Central States Theater assumed the ownership of the Palace from A. H. Blank Theaters and continued to entertain movie goers until it closed in the mid-1980's.
The Music Man made its movie premiere at the Palace Theater on the night of June 19, 1962. The entire cast of the movie traveled to Mason City for the event. An after premiere party was held at the Hotel Hanford.
