Beautiful interior with unusual vintage decor. Star filled ceiling. The seats are very comfortable and acoustics are good. Shows a variety of programs. Great film festival the month of August. In the heart of downtown El Paso Arts District.

I have gone to my child's performance. The place is beautiful and has a great acustics. Wherever you seat you have a clear view of the stage, and the seats are comfortable. The people that work, and the people that are volunteers are very nice, polite, and very helpful.

Impressed with some of the entertainment that it draws. Seating is comfortable and the acoustics are good. I'd recommend this but they do need more dining in the area.

Nice building and venue . Not sure why the washroom facilities are as deficient as they are given the fact the reno is of recent vintage. Not as professionally run a venue as we've seen in most cities . Not sure why as there appear to be large numbers of staff compared to most. That aside worth a visit.

I've been here a few times. I love coming back as much as possible. Seen Nutcracker-Jersey Boys-Concerts. It's a treat to catch a function here. A must GO. *something to remember,"THERE IS MORE THAN ONE RESTROOM." Second ,larger restroom located down a small hallway past the men's restroom. ALL THE WAY DWN.

One of the last of the great movie theater palaces, complete with a large balcony, plush maroon seats, a Wurlitzer organ, and fabulous 30s-style lounge restrooms. Spanish style design a la Granada or Sevilla. Hosts the symphony, touring Broadway shows, the classic film festival.

This venue is good for movies, with the caveat that concession options stink. That said, I would URGE anyone considering attending a music performance here to JUMP at the chance. What a great place for a "Rock Show"!

Classic theatre has been restored to the grandeur of what it was like when first built. Great venue to see live theatre, concerts and movies.

My son was in town and we took this tour of The Plaza. It's such a beautiful place, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a little bit of history. The architecture is phenomenal. It's a free tour and lasts a little over an hour. Very worth the time.
