El Paso's Plaza Theatre

Fully restored, El Paso has a jewel of a theatre in the Plaza, and its website says the theatre, "opened September 12, 1930 to a capacity crowd of 2,410. It was advertised as the largest theater of its kind between Dallas and Los Angeles. Designed as a modern film house with the flexibility of presenting stage shows, the Plaza eventually hosted popular traveling shows and movies, becoming a fixture in the lives of theatergoers for generations to come."

The theatre's full history is here and the calendar of performances is here!  Plan to attend a performance soon!
