Since 1941 the Plaza Theatre has been a landmark and focal point for Garland. It has been completely refurbished to its original Art Deco style.
On its opening night April 4, 1941, it played its first feature presentation “Western Union” to a sold out theatre.
The Plaza Theatre was the third theatre built on the downtown square. On March 3, 1950 the current facade was redone and designed by Jack Grogan of Dallas, TX. In the 1950’s with television taking its toll the theatre was rented to other operators with the last of which playing Hispanic movies. During the 1970’s the theatre was used for country/western groups. The theatre was donated to the City of Garland in 1991. It is now operated by the city for live performaces.
