Picture here. Dated 1962, looks like it was closed by then.

The Plaza Theatre at Bayonne was mentioned in the trade journal Motion Picture News in September, 1925, and it was listed in the 1926 FDY, though with only 500 seats.

The marquee of the theater was demolished in 1970, however, the rest of the building still stands. The building has been repurposed in the 1970’s as apartments on the upper floors and 2 storefronts on the ground level.
