I remember coming here as a teenager. It must have closed around the late 1990s.

Actually, I remember seeing “Pulp Fiction” here when I was 17.

A photo and floor plan of the Plaza Theatre appeared in the August, 1920, issue of the professional journal Architecture. It can be seen online here, courtesy of the Internet Archive. The caption attributes the design of the Plaza Theatre to architect Harry S. Bair, who also designed Pittsburgh’s Regent Theatre.

At some point (70s-80s) It became a 2 screen. The last Movie I saw there was an awfull “Nightmare on Elm St.” I forgot which on but it was “3D” and of course really bad =)

The Plaza was DARK for many years. It was reopened in December 1979 with “Roller Boogie.”
