This 600-seat Art Deco style theatre was located inside a building outfitted with a hotel on its upper floors. Operating prior to 1941, when at that time it was operated by Commonwealth Amusement. They continued to operate it until at least 1950.

The theater was later gutted and the entire complex was converted into apartments which have retained the original marquee.

Like many children in the Trenton area…this was “Our Theatre” especially at Saturday Matinees! How the memories linger on of cowboy pictures and serials week after week! The only other movie theatre in town that closed in the 1950’s was the Royal…one block north of the Plaza. But all the “blockbusters” were screened at the Plaza…and many a “first date” couple saw their favorite pictures screened here. Also as a child…going to the movies on Friday nights was a “Family Affair”…with all 5 of us in attendance. And believe it or not…I can actually remember my father wearing a necktie…way back then! So thanks to the owners of the Plaza Theatre for providing us with so many hours of pleasure and so many wonderful memories!

My best…William Hamilton!
