Highway 1 S is also known as Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Plaza Twin opened in 1972 and was operated by Gulf States Theatres. Seating was listed at 450. By 1987 it was under the United Artists banner. The theatre closed in 2005 but I was unable to find who operated it at that time. The building is still standing, usage unknown.

Any additional informaton on the Plaza Twin Cinema would be appreciated.
