MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Palace Theatre is one step closer to being demolished after a state permit was issued for its demolition.

On Friday, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control issued the permit for demolition of The Palace Theatre by Low Country Unlimited.

This permit must first be brought to the city and the city must issue their own demolition permit before the building can actually be demolished, according to city spokesman Mark Kruea.

This permit allows for work as soon as April 25, however, it may take longer than that for the city to issue its own demolition permit.

The permit issued by DHEC relates specifically to the removal of any asbestos, to which DHEC in previous emails has said, “A building inspection report for the Palace Theatre was completed in December 2016.  The report indicates that no asbestos was found in the building.”

The Palace Theater sustained significant damage to its front façade during Hurricane Matthew, and has remained closed since. Earlier this month, it was made public that the theater at Broadway at the Beach will not reopen, and The Chapin Company, which owns the theater, plans to demolish the building as soon as possible.
