The Plaza Theater is showing movies again. The City of Garland showed ‘Some Like It Hot’ on June 30 and ‘Top Gun’ on July 28. and there was no admission fee. I hope they keep this going.

I think that this beautiful theater might be a Jack CORGAN design???

That large Plaza neon sign was installed in 1949 at a cost of $5000. I remember a newspaper article talking about the spinning ball at the top. I was only 9 years old then and my parents drove us downtown justs to see the large Plaza display.

The largest crowd I remember at that theater was when Old Yeller showed on a Saturday matinee. The place was packed and all the isles were jamed with kids They were actually sitting on the floor in both isles. I left after the movie was over and outside was two lines of people that were lined all the way down around the corner of the police station.

I used to attend The Plaza as a kid, but never knew the history of this theatre. Do you know the previous names/dates of this theatre?

Thank you.
