Landmark closed the Coronet Theatre on March 16, 1998. Here’s the ad from its last day of operation:

And the ad for the Coronet from the following day (which has the word “CLOSED” plastered over the ad):

Famous Players closed the Plaza 400 on October 1, 1992, and it was reopened by Landmark as the Coronet just over two months later on December 11, 1992. Links below:

Here’s a photo of what happened to the old Plaza 400/Coronet theatre space not long after the Coronet closed. Appears the former cinemas were converted into a casino called Casino Hollywood for a few years.
