It was owned by Commonwealth in 1987, United Artists in 1988 and Wallace-Hollywood in 1996 who closed it in 1999.
The Plaza twin opened on March 5th, 1969. Grand opening ad posted.
The Hillcrest Shopping Center opened theater-less in 1963 with anchors Woolworth’s and Grand Central department store. In 1969, expansion brought about the Plaza Twin cinema. The theatre played “Star Wars” to enthusiastic crowds. Two decades after closing, the Plaza Twin was still fully intact although locked up.
The “retail space” in question was a HonK’s $1.00 (capitalization accurate) store which occupied the former lobby. As of a couple years ago, the seating still existed behind the retail store area. This was confirmed by a HonK’s employee when I asked where the old theater was located within the complex.
