Theatre opened on 26 November 1935 and now has 533 seats.David Naylor’s book,Great American Movie Theaters,lists the architect as Emile Weil,but the theatre’s website,www.crightontheatre.org,states the architect was Blum E Hester.It closed in the mid 1960’s and the style is atmospheric.Naylor calls it a “Venetian variation on the Florentine atmospheric theme”.

I have only been involved with Cinema Treasures in recent years but have much admiration for Jim Rankin’s knowledge of theatres and particularly his amazing writing skills.If only I could write half as good.
His passing is a great loss for all those connected with Cinema Treasures and the Theatre Historical Society of America.

atmos commented about Plaza Theatre on Apr 9, 2006 at 2:52 am

Interesting to read on the theatre website that construction began in 1930 but the depression delayed the completion of the building until 1934.It opened 23 August and was designed by local architect,Dixon Rapp.I wonder if he is related to George and Cornelius.
