An article in the March 1992 edition of Boxoffice states that NEI acquired this theatre from previous tenants Century Theatres Inc.

I know this was NOT Century/Syufy and don’t believe that the Century Cinema Corp was operating at this time.

There was another Plaza 3 but in Churchland. Three very small audioriums and opened in the early 70’s. The big deal here was despite the tiny screen, one of these theatres was equipped for 70mm projection with six track stereo sound. It was also the first theatre in Va that was equipped for Dolby Stereo. I am wondering if this is the same theatre.

The lobby of the theater opened into a common area shared with at least two other large businesses creating a mini mall effect. At one point the two other businesses were a pharmacy and a steak house. The shopping center has been torn down with the exception of a few out parcels and replaced by a Harris Teeter store.
