“The Plaza was originally opened as the Liberty in the 1900s by Robb and Rowley. They were associated with the Davidge family who created a succesful theater business that spanned half a century in Durant. It closed for a few weeks in 1932 and was reopened as the State by the Davidges and Chester McSwain. Operating only a couple of days a week the State closed the same year. The Plaza was opened in that location July 3rd, 1936 by Davidge, Robb and Rowley. As late as 1984 the Plaza was open and showing movies but has since closed”

A few photos from 2009 of the Plaza Theater in Durant. Notice the barber shop which occupies part of the theater building. For whatever reason the sight of a barber shop in or near a theater building is a common thread in hundreds of theater photos. A look through the window of this particular shop was like looking back at least fifty years into the past.
