United Palace Theatre

Manhattan's 4th largest theatre, hosting concerts, film shoots and special events.


The United Palace opened in 1930 as a vaudeville house and deluxe movie theatre. In 1969 it was purchased and preserved by the prosperity preacher Rev. Ike, who restored the stunning architecture while building his congregation. Today the Palace continues his legacy through the United Palace House of Inspiration (UPHI). The building also houses an independent, nonprofit arts and cultural center called the United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA), and hosts dozens of concerts, film shoots and other events throughout the year. With close to 3,400 seats, it is Manhattan's 4th largest theatre.
