Emergency Grant to United Palace Theater

The United Palace Theater was built in 1930 and exuberantly designed by Thomas Lamb as one of the Loew’s Wonder Theaters, which featured both vaudeville and motion pictures. It is owned by the United Palace of Spiritual Arts, who previously used the theater as a church. Currently, the building hosts various cultural events, including a movie series hosted by Lin-Manuel Miranda, stand-up comedy, and musical performances. It is also a center for inter-denominational spiritual artistry, hosting lectures, art installations, and workshops.

A piece of the building’s terra cotta cornice recently fell and the organization needs to perform a conditions assessment of the exterior to determine if the terra cotta is failing elsewhere. The Conservancy has awarded a $20,000 Emergency Preservation Grant to offset the cost of the assessment by Kamen Tall Architects.
