While visiting Glasgow, be sure to visit the
Historic Plaza Theatre located at 115 East Main Street right
off the downtown square. The Plaza Theatre, a 1,019-seat proscenium theatre, is
a restored and renovated vaudeville and movie house from the 1930s. Currently,
it hosts a variety of events including national touring acts, local performance
groups, private functions, and a film series. The theatre is a historic landmark
The Plaza Theatre has been
beautifully restored since its original opening in 1934. After a long history of
movies as well as live stage performances, the family-owned and operated Plaza
was sold in 1973. Unfortunately, soon after its purchase it closed. The City of
Glasgow purchased the Plaza and its value to the community is priceless.
Following an 18-month renovation, the theatre reopened on April 27, 2005.
Patrons at the Plaza find
themselves sitting in a Mediterranean courtyard twinkling stars and moving
clouds overhead. All architectural details, including the seats, are original to
the 1934 opening. This gives the patron a true sense of what the theatre
experience was like in the early 20th century.
