The Plaza Theater is not only beautiful and a wonderful historic example of a past era. It offers an enjoyable atmosphere for concerts, musicals, etc. We look forward to attending events there.

One of my favorite places to go in El Paso. Whatever the event: music, movie, theatre, watching paint dry- you can add several bonus points if it's happening at the Plaza. I love old theaters. The pride that the volunteers and staff take in maintaining and improving this landmark is evident.

This theater is really nice. Much better acoustics since they renovated it a few years ago. Seen many concerts here and even several movies. Nice seating. Comfortable.

And now with the refreshments that are served,... More
