The Plaza Theater was located on North Pierce Street, and opened in 1916, a conversion of a former wholesale liquor house. It had gone from listings by 1941. It had no connection with the Plaza Twin that opened in the 1990’s.

The Plaza Theatre opened in 1916. Here is an announcement from the January 8 issue of The Moving Picture World that year:

“SIOUX CITY. IOWA.— Plans have been filed for the new Plaza theater in Sioux City which St. Elmo Bateman of Waterloo is promoting. A wholesale liquor house is to be transformed at a cost of $35,000. It will contain a pipe organ, the only one in a Sioux City photoplay house.”
