MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Work to tear down the Palace Theatre continued on Wednesday, with the building’s signature dome coming down.

See video of the aftermath of the dome coming down above.

Starting last Thursday, April 25, crews began tearing down the Palace Theatre. Demolition is expected to be completed before the end of June.

The Palace Theatre was heavily damaged during Hurricane Matthew last October, which left a gaping hole in the theater's front facade.

Earlier this month, it came to light that the owner of the theater, The Chapin Company, opted to demolish the building instead of repairing it.
