Theatre Plaza is now a live music venue. Here is their web site (it’s in French, and I can’t find an English version.) The web site has a number of photos of events at the house, and a lot of the original auditorium decor appears to be intact.
The house opened on February 17, 1922, under the direction of United Amusement, the company that also had the Strand (1912), the Regent (1916), the Rialto (1924), the Seville (1929), the Monkland (1930), and the Snowdon (1937.) Construction had begun in 1921 for Northern Amusement, but the project was transfered to United later that year.
United hired their favorite architect, Daniel Crighton, to enlarge the uncompleted theater building, and later hired theater decorator Emmanuel Briffa, a frequent Crighton collaborator, to handle the interiors.
