WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT

Palace Theatre

AT THE MOVIES

Each year Oakley High School students apply for the class that runs the theatre.  Students run equipment, schedule workers for the concession stand, pay the bills and learn the business of running a business.  

The idea is unique enough that the Palace Theatre has been featured in People Magazine and on ABC national news.
