GEORGE JOHN ZBOYOVSKY

Owner and manager of the Palace Theater, the only vaudeville house in the city, was born in South Bethlehem, a son of George and Barbara Smayda Zboyovsky. He received his early education in the South Bethlehem public schools and was graduated from the Bethlehem Preparatory School in 1903. He attended Lehigh University for a year and then assisted his father in the hotel and banking business. For some time he engaged in the meat business, but returned after a year to the banking and real estate business. From 1912 to 1917 he successfully managed the American Hotel, East Third Street. In 1915 he took over the Palace Theater and made an up-to-date amusement house out of it, purchasing the building two years later. He is one of the stock­holders and organizers of the S. and M. Film Company, of Philadelphia, producing pictures, one of its recent famous features being, "For the Freedom of the World.” His theater is located at 206—208 East Third Street.
