NYC style seats

This is really a nice location, the ambientation is amazing, but the seats are to close together. I like the stars in the sky like cealin.

Went for the Nutcracker around the holidays and it was a beautiful night! The theater was full and the holiday cheer was flowing. Everything from the entrance to the bathroom was stunning. The show was amazing and even though we were seated off to the side we could see everything! We went for a drink at Anson 11 before hand... More

It's a beautiful theatre. It appears that there are stars in the sky sparkling. They did a fantastic job renovating this theatre. I love going there & have been there for many venues. It's a fantastic theatre!

I dislike the plaza for one reason! The seats are the same size as they were in the 40's. Unfortunately the people aren't the same size as then. Rows are so close. The Plaza itself is as beautiful as it was in the 50's but the seats again, are smaller than airplane seats!

We saw the last performance of "Wicked" at the Plaza Theater. We have been to other events at the Plaza and have not been impressed with the seats on the floor, which is only slightly sloped, making it difficult for a short person to get a clear view of the stage. We decided to try the balcony, but we were... More

We recently watched the play "Wicked" in the Plaza Theatre around Memorial day. The inside of the theatre is absolutely breathtaking. For many years it had been in such dis-repair it was heartbreaking. If you get the chance to go, do it.

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 visited this historical location since the early 70's when the exorcist movie was presented. Years after the Theater went into a major remodel and become what is now a beautiful historic site in Downtown El Paso. My granddaughter participated in her first ballet recital 2 years ago and I was so proud to be there and have a... More
