Plaza Theatre

The Plaza Theatre is the height of high-end retro grandeur. It is a classic “atmospheric” movie theater that was converted into a performing arts center through a $38 million renovation. Originally built during the Depression, the architectural style is an escapist fantasy. A gilt proscenium frames a stage set in the simulacrum of a Spanish/Moorish estate, complete with twinkling stars in the ceiling. These days, the 2000-seat theater hosts Broadway shows featuring sold-out performances, rockers, and blues legends. For nearly two weeks each August the theater is also home to The Plaza Classic Film Festival, the largest festival of its kind in the world. Free tours of the Plaza are offered every Tuesday at noon.
