When the Plaza Cinema opened in 1971, it had the Washington Township movie market all to itself. But a year later, a New York firm bought the theater and began showing pornography. A group of churchgoing teenagers set up a picket line around the theater. They carried signs such as,
Smut and Filth Out' orGet Out.‘ A week later, the Plaza’s 26-year-old manager was arrested on `a charge of showing obscene films’ after an undercover operation by township. Nonetheless, the cinema survived on this format until it closed at the end of April 2002. It was the last full time X rated theater in South Jersey. The last owner was Cinema Art Theaters Inc. of Haverford, PA.
The Plaza Cinema was demolished in the summer of 2008.
