The Plaza Theatre opened on May 1, 1950. It was a conversion of an existing building to the plans of architect William L. Drevo. It was operated as an art house cinema by Samuel L. Roth. It was remodeled in 1967 to the plans of architect John J. MacNamara.
The theatre had a cramped booth with Motograph projectors and an arc lamp converted to a Claglight (quartz bulb conversion made by RCA Service Tech Russ Claggett). The booth was accessed from an external stairway that also led to offices above the theatre. IATSE Moving Picture Machine Operators Local 224 had offices above theatre until early-1970’s. The 1960 Yellow Pages lists the Plaza as part of the Trans-Lux chain.
