The current “Plaza 9” theatre is located in the “Marshall Town Center” shopping mall, known as the “MARSHALLTOWN MALL” when it was built in 1972. The movie theatre there originally had two screens when it opened in 1972 or 1973.

The Plaza Cinema in Marshalltown was slated to be a single-screen house for the Chicago-based L & M Circuit when it was announced in Boxoffice of August 24, 1970. It was one of three projects L & M planned for locations in Iowa shopping centers being developed by Matthew Buckshaum.

The other projects were a single-screener in Keokuk and a twin in Muscatine. L & M hoped to have the Marshalltown house opened within a year of the announcement. The other two were slated to open earlier. L & M’s first twin theater had recently opened at Aurora, Illinois.
