The Cozy Theatre was referred to as a west side theatre that took the place of a mausoleum. The theatre opened as an independent by Neale Gordon on July 2, 1928 with Vera Reynolds and Harrison Ford in “Golf Widows.” Full houses opening night with a broken air handling system was an auspicious debut. On November 11, 1928, the theatre installed sound for its first talkie - said to be the first in the city. The theatre then switched to full-time talkies on March 24, 1929. But the theatre went out of business quickly thereafter in 1929.
The venue reopened with another sound system on February 2, 1930 and closed again. It reopened as the Cozy Theatre on April 13, 1931 with a new sound on film system and closed again quickly. It reopened on June 17, 1932 one final time as the Cozy Theatre and closed quickly again.
On November 3, 1932, Floyd Ward - who had managed the Uptown Theatre and Orpheum Theatre - gave the location another try as the Plaza Theatre. Opening film was “Man and Wife” (aka “Avenging Seas” and “The Happy Ending”) with George Barraud and Daphne Courtney. The theatre ended its run in February of 1933.
