GENESEO – The owners of the Palace at 61 Main Street are sending away the building’s prominent damaged marquee for restoration.
Palace Properties Inc. partners Don Livingston and Jim Sullivan are taking down the marquee temporarily to be restored and reinstalled.
Unable to find marketplace offers.
In May 2017, a clogged drain pipe retained excess water in the marquee, which eventually was too much for one of the marquee’s three large support systems.
The marquee has been shored up since then.
According to cinematreasures.org, the Palace was built as a movie theater by late local legend Pete Bondi in 1929, but was converted to a bowling alley in 1938. It later became a bar, and then office space in 1985.
