The Plaza Theater was built in 1917 replacing an older Plaza Theater that had burned down. This theater had orchestra seating on the main floor, which was surprisingly small. There was also little or no slope to the floor. The balcony was considerably larger though. Not only did it overhang part of the main floor, but extended back over the lobby area as well.
By the 1950’s, this theater was well worn and musty, never having been refurbished over the decades. It closed around 1959 never to reopen, and was finally demolished.
