The United Palace is an Uptown treasure. Built during the movie palace boom in the 1920s, the United Palace opened its doors in 1930 as an opulent movie house that transported moviegoers to a lavish, almost otherworldly, setting. Today, the venerable United Palace has become a haven and a hub for the arts and culture of northern Manhattan. It still fills with awe anyone that enters this one-of-a-kind edifice. The United Palace is one of the four movie palaces featured in the must-see episode.
