DavidZornig commented about Plaza Theatre on Dec 22, 2014 at 5:43 pm

Someone pointed out that “Levine’s” also appears horizontally on the neighboring building. Levine’s was apparently a chain store in Dallas. But I can find no similar Plaza Theatre buildings there or in Texas for that matter.

I added a photo that is possibly the Plaza Theatre. The Levine’s name accompanies it above what appears to be a marquee overhang. Photo from the early `60’s, courtesy of the AmeriCar The Beautiful Facebook page.

DavidZornig commented about Webster Place Theaters on Dec 17, 2014 at 2:01 pm

Webster Place is now ALL reserved seating. This policy began about two months ago according to the ticket agent. So people buy their tickets online in advance, and hold the good seats before they ever arrive. Walk-ins must choose from whatever is left. Had to take two on the far left side aisle for “Gone Girl”. The auditorium was empty until 5 minutes before start time.
