Opened in 1927 and was owned by the Durham family, it was run in conjunction with Famous Players. The Durham family took it back in 1998 and it is still open, now converted to digital projection.

At present the Plaza shows movies and is also used for live performances.

The Plaza notably still has the pre-1988 Famous Players logo as part of its marquee (dating from when that chain owned it), though it’s been years since FP sold the theatre.

The Plaza Theatre in Shauvavon was a partnership situation between the Durham Family of Shaunavon and Famous Players Canadian Corporation. The Durham Family ALWAYS owned the theatre, but Famous Players split the profits in equal shares with the Durham family. The Durhams managed the theatre (under directions from Famous Players)! The best news EVER for this theatre is that the Durham family have installed DIGITAL projection. The Plaza Theatre is the longest continually family owned theatre in North America!!
