Open House New York and ARTNOIR
Saturday, October 15, 2016
If you’ve always wanted to explore the Palace’s architecture but never had the chance, stop by on October 15 as United Palace opens its doors to the public for the first time as part of the 14th Annual Open House New York Weekend.
The Palace will be one of the city’s 275 most important buildings unlocking its doors over the weekend, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York.
The Palace was also selected as one of 10 sites to be highlighted by ARTNOIR, the global collective of culturalists who offer alternative perspectives to the traditional arts narrative.
“Every New York City building carries the DNA of those that have built, rebuilt and reclaimed them over time,” says ARTNOIR co-founder Sherlen Archibald. “By mapping out the historical legacies of these sacred spaces, we aim to highlight and explore how the built environment serves as an essential catalyst for cultural exchange in both the present and future.”
Open House New York is a nonprofit organization that provides curated experiences and insider access to spaces across New York City through the annual Open House New York Weekend and year-round programs, inspiring curiosity, establishing community, and fostering
dialogue around the future of the city. For more information, visit www.ohny.org.
ARTNOIR designs experiences aimed at engaging this generation’s dynamic and diverse creative class. The group offers an alternative perspective to the traditional arts narrative, supports the freedom of artistic expression for all, and provides a platform for bold acts of creativity and storytelling.

Reawaken Wonder at a Timeless Movie Palace
Join Lin-Manuel Miranda in upgrading the United Palace for cinema
Since 2013, UPCA has led crowdsourcing campaigns to purchase used projection equipment and a new screen, returning movies to the Palace for the first time since 1969. The city’s film community has responded enthusiastically, resulting in a string of screenings of beloved classics with pre-movie stage shows to honor the Palace’s past as a vaudeville house.
Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda helped launch Movies at the Palace by supporting initial fundraising campaigns and hosting the first series of “Classic New York Movies” that paired the likes of “West Side Story” with an introduction by Rita Moreno and “King Kong” with an introduction by John Landis.
Now Miranda has continued his support of Movies at the Palace by donating $100,000 for a new DCP projection system that will produce a Hollywood-quality image, replacing the Palace’s old equipment that only played BluRay disks. With Miranda’s generous donation, the Palace now has a world-class projector to match its world-class setting.
