The report on new theaters built in 1975 that ran in the May 3, 1976, issue of Boxoffice listed The Plaza, a 700-seat triplex at Yuma opened by Great Western Theatres.

The May 20, 1975, issue of The Yuma Daily Sun said that a benefit premier would be held Thursday night (May 22) with a showing of The Four Musketeers. The Friday night grand opening would feature The Great Waldo Pepper in one of the larger auditoriums and The Godfather Part II in the other. The small, 120-seat auditorium would open with A Woman Under the Influence.

Judging from street view, it looks like the building had an addition at one point, on the W. 15th Place side, so the two additional screens that brought the total to five were probably in that. I don’t know what the final seat count was.

I designed the Plaza 3 in Yuma in 1974-75 forGreat Western Theaters… Formally a Safeway Supermarket. I was there for the Grand Opening and very sad to see it gone!
