The Palace Grand Theatre

Video duration: 3:05Video has closed captioning.

The jewel of Dawson City is the Palace Grand Theatre. Built by Arizona Charlie Meadows, a showman from the Wild West shows, it opened its doors in 1899. It had a short yet prosperous run during the gold rush showcasing popular performances of the time. In 1961, after years of neglect, the Canadian government restored the theatre. At present, the Palace Grand is a popular and lively cultural venue.
