Ever been to El Paso during the dog days of August on business and wondered "What on earth am I going to do this evening after work?" Check out the Plaza Classic Film Festival: the movies (for example, Star Wars, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and the Return of the Jedi, Giant, and Yojimbo) played in 2016, and... More

Several different productions have been presented such as live broadway plays, stand-up comedians, musical productions. The acoustics and layout of the Plaza is such that there is no bad seating. And now with the refreshments that are served,... More

Loved this local live theatre! Recently enjoyed Heaven Can Wait. They did an awesome job, such fun! Talented cast, who obviously enjoy what they do. Have tried a couple of times to catch other plays , however they have been sold out! Glad for this theatre group, that they are supported & enjoyed by many!

I've attended many shows there over the years. When company comes to visit from afar and I have the opportunity to bring them to an event held in the Plaza Theatre, I am always very proud to invite them to come see the beauty of the old place for themselves. It is such a pleasure to step back in time... More

I attended several movies at the Film Fest and the experience is awesome! There's nothing like seeing an old classic movie in such a beautiful and historic theatre!

Everything is as wonderful or better than when I attended the Plaza Theatre when I was young. I can't wait to see another function.

Have seen several shows at The Plaza Theaters. It has great acoustics and is quite comfortable, but the best part is the beauty of the theater, remodeled about 10 years ago it is a gem that must be seen. During the month of August the largest classic film festival in the US is held for approximately 2 weeks. I LOVE... More

Beautiful, antique feeling to this 1920s reborn theater. I am so glad to have opportunities to come visit it and experience musical and cultural performances inside it. I recall as a child that the ceiling had real life like stars flashing on and off to create a twilight effect when they dim the house lights for performances. I great childhood... More

We love the remodel and have been several times on a family outing. Think it should start shows a little bit earlier so it is not so hard to take the kids. The costs of the concessions is a bit pricey.
