The Palace Theater is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It was designed by a German architect, Alfred M. Lublin and was built in 1941 as a movie house. In its day, the Palace Theatre was considered one of the finest theatres on the east coast and held 380 orchestra level seats as well as fifty balcony seats. At this time, Cape Charles was a prosperous railroad town. The terrazzo floors, walnut paneling, and foyer mirrors give way to the entrance of this vintage treasure, a most exclusive and elegant appeal. The Palace Theatre is the only existing Historic Theatre on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Eastern Shore Pottery is located 1/4 mile from the hotel on US 13 and offers a wide variety of crafts.
