On Facebook Flames Central administration posted saying,
“We’ll be officially reopening as The Palace Theatre February 2017 and will be switching over our social media accounts in the coming weeks, but don’t worry – all previously scheduled events & tickets are still good to go. Stay tuned for more information and announcements.”
The Palace Theatre was formally recognized as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1996 and in 2007 the venue changed names when the Calgary Flames partnered with Concorde Entertainment Group to turn the Palace Theatre into a hockey hub.
Built in 1921, it is one of four movie “palaces” still standing in western Canada and was designed by the internationally renowned theatre architect Howard C. Crane.
