I saw the play Annie at the Plaza Theater this week and it was great. But the highlight for me was the theater. The lights are still blinking on the ceiling as I remembered from when I was a teen watching a movie. The seating is roomy, and the renovations have highlighted the best of the theater? Definately a good... More

I have been here 3 times, Wicked, The Weird Al covert, and the recent Eric Idle and John Cleese show. Great venue to see any performance. The history of the building itself is reason enough to go but very beautiful decor and acoustics. Definite recommend catching a performance here or if possible just to walk around and appreciate the historical... More

If you haven't been to the Plaza Theatre since it was remodeled 10 years ago then you need to go. As good as the Theatres in New York City. Old theatre ambience. And it does have a wheelchair lift to the seating area. Bathrooms are a little hard to get to but old buildings are just that way.

I've seen many shows in this theater over the years. It's a beautiful, historic theater, but a bit small. Although they added new restrooms with numerous stalls, it still seems insufficient as the lines can get long during intermission. I do appreciate that they have been able to bring top Broadway shows over the years, and watching a show in... More

Had the opportunity to visit this magnificent theatre in El Paso, Texas while in the concert of Amanda Miguel and Diego Verdaguer. This is a small theatre with a two-story sitting. Seats are comfortable eventhough the place has been around for a long time. It opened back in 1930 and was know as El Paso Showcase. It remained closed several... More

We went to see a play about Tom Lea it was during October which is Tom Lea Month. The play was really good but I was so surprised that there was another small theatre. It is a small, intimate theatre with beautiful architectural features. Of course there is the big main theatre where most of the plays, movies and concerts... More

Grand old theatre. Sound quality was exceptional. Seats were comfortable. Atmosphere, outstanding. Only thing was the lobby was uncomfortably warm while we were waiting for the doors to open. We had been to the Eugene O'Neil theater on broadway and the Plaza was better.
