The Plaza Twin existed roughly 1970-1992. It was extensively remodelled during the last few years, with a great sound system. It had the best seats! The Plaza Twin once had a “Planet of the Apes Fest”, in which they showed all the “Apes” films!

The building was demolished to make way for new retail buildings at Serramonte Plaza Shopping Center.

I worked at the Plaza in the late ‘70’s and early 80’s when Plitt still owned it. It was really big for a twinplex – 700 seats on one side, and I believe the other side was the same or bigger. Compared to the Serramonte Six, it was considered up-scale. We made gigantic, paper mache frog legs for the premier of The Muppet Movie. Bob Wilkins from the KTVU Creature Features show was on hand for that. When Animal House ran, we had a giant pyramid of beer cans. And for the re-release of the The Exorsist, we had a bed in the lobby that bounced up and down.

I remember watching TRON, Blue Thunder, Star Trek 3 and Ghostbusters 1 and 2. The Funny thing I remember was when they remodeled it, One theater had the crappy seats (Theater 1) and the Second theater had the recliners. Cursed with Funny memories. Pls correct me if I’m wrong.

One of the rare cinema outside of the Southeast to have an Ultra-Vision screen.

The Plaza was one of my favorite theaters. My earliest memory of the theater is seeing Disney’s “The Shaggy D.A.” on one side while my mom saw “The Enforcer” on the other screen. I remember seeing “Escape from Alcatraz”, “Tron”, “Chariots of Fire”, and a re-release of “The Empire Strikes Back” at this theater.
