Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Plaza is a beautifully preserved brick Moderne style theater that is situated in Carrollton’s old downtown area. It opened December 23, 1949 and operated continuosly as a movie theater for the next 43 years. It was designed by Raymond F. Smith and has an equally well preserved sign, with lots of neon and marquee. It is now operating as a succesful art gallery.

I show the correct address for the Plaza Theatre as 1115 Fourth Avenue and not Street. A minor point but accuracy is important. I show the closing date of this theatre as December 31, 1994. The current owner is The Plaza Art Center.

During the time I was married and living near this theatre, it was a favorite place to go—whether taking my daughter to see a kids' show as she was growing up or just waiting to see something for more mature audiences with my ex-wife. We would deliberately put-off going to see first-run movies until they came to the “dollar”-movie houses (which the Plaza was at that time) just in case something that interested us might show there and we could once again partake of the “full-screen, one auditorium” experience that was even then becoming passe'. I remember the last feature shown there was “The Mask” in the early-90’s.
