Eisentraut Theatres closed after showtimes on March 16, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic that closed it and theatres around the globe. On June 12, 2020, the management made the decision to permanently close the theatre becoming another of many theaters closing permanently during the pandemic.

The August 24, 1970, issue of Boxoffice said that that the L & M Circuit was planning three new theaters in Iowa, all to be located in shopping centers that were being developed by Matthew Buckshaum.

The 400-seat, single screen Plaza Cinema in Keokuk’s Keosippi Plaza Shopping Center (now River City Mall) was to be located at the south end of the enclosed mall, adjacent to the entrance of a Montgomery Ward department store (now a Dollar General store.) A Christmas Day opening was planned.

To Chuck1231, Actually The Building The Theatre In The 500 Block Of Main Was Called The WARWICK BUILDING. It Had Been The Offices Of The Old CONSTITUTION-DEMOCRAT NEWSPAPER. The Theatre Opened In The Building Was Operated By THE BAKER-DODGE THEATRE COMPANY Circa August, 1916.

There’s an embedded video tour of the place (from YouTube) on Eisentraut Theaters' website. It’s not easy to see why AMC decided this place wasn’t in their model: it’s the type of theatre they abandoned running in the 80’s even though it probably still does well (although the margins aren’t nearly what they’d be at a 24-plex). Despite the fact the owner of the chain has expressed some bizarre and controversial views on this site a few years ago – I wish the operation well for the sake of the community.
