This theater was originally the Colonial Theatre when it operated from about 1927 to 1930; it closed due to the Depression around 1930. It reopened in 1937 as the Plaza Theatre and was the only theater in Greenville for African-Americans until the Roxy Theatre opened across the street in 1948. The Plaza could not compete with the modern Roxy and was closed by 1950.

This theatre, formerly located on Albemarle Avenue(on the opposite side of the street from the Roxy Theatre), was demolished over forty years ago.
