The Plaza Theatre was operating prior to 1941, and continued until at least 1950. Don’t know when this was twinned, but it was a nice neighborhood single screen theater when I last went here.

I remember when it was the “New Plaza” theater in the early 70’s, and a single screen theater. It even had a smoking section in the back rows on the left-hand side. Saw lots of good movies here.

I was a projectionist here in the late 80’s until May 1995. The theatre was originally twinned in 1978. After a change in ownership in 1985, the theatre was quaded. In 1989, a 5th screen was added by splitting one of the splits (theatre 4). Was very run down in its final years, and closed for good in 1998 I think.

First film I saw at this theater was CONAN THE DESTROYER. My ex would always get mad at me when I would sing along with the HOUSE OF RECORDS promo that was spliced onto the trailer reel of every screening – markp, do you remember it?
