Why didn’t Myrtle Beach maintain its live music theater stronghold on the Southeast?

The Palace Theater, a Myrtle Beach landmark for over two decades is slated to be demolished. Storm damage from Hurricane Matthew left a large hole in the facade. Tuesday, April 11, 2017.

From 10 theaters along the Grand Strand area, to three survivors. The Palace Theater was in the mix of live theaters in 2016 until Hurricane Mathew damaged the building and forced it to close down. Now, The Carolina Opry, The Alabama Theatre and Legends in Concert are the final three to provide live music theater options to the 18 million tourists who come to the Myrtle Beach area.

So, what happened to the vision to make Myrtle Beach the live music theater capital of the Southeast?
