Hi!
I would like to know if there are any future plans of opening this theater back up, if so when if not, what is the possibility of purchasing it?

In the summer of 1996 we showed THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at midnight at the Plaza. 20th Century Fox didn’t want to give us a good print of the film because it had never shown in a drive-in before, but when we outgrossed every theatre playing it in the US they agreed to strike us a new one. We played it 4 weekends and only took it off because the kids kept setting fire to their matresses to make it smokey and the fire department kept getting calls.
