Gainesville’s Plaza Theatre was a chic monolith structure decorated in subdued Art Deco styling that caught the eye of passers by.

Plaza auditorium detail was a bit more flamboyant. Speed stripes defined sidewalls in colours of salmon, saffron, and powder blue. Zig-zag, stacked cone lighting fixtures accentuated the Art Deco effect. A small balcony offered cheap seats, topped by an off center projection booth.

Please jot down here any info you may have on the Plaza.
