MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Palace Theatre in Myrtle Beach will be closed for the remainder of the year after sustaining severe damage during Hurricane Matthew.

A large piece of the theater's front facade was ripped off during the hurricane, exposing the theater to the outside.

A representative with the company confirmed that all shows for the remainder of 2016 have been cancelled, including the Christmas Wonderland holiday show, the Hot Jersey Nights tribute to the Four Seasons, and Ron White's show, which was scheduled for October 8. The theater hopes to set a new date for the Ron White show soon, according to a Facebook post.
