I have attended several EPSO and Zuill Bailey concerts, and the atmosphere is fantastic. One of the things that I look forward to when visiting this venue is the astronomically accurate ceiling that looks like a summer in June. Most, if not all of the events for the Plaza require semi formal to formal attire. Feel free to go with... More

The Plaza Theatre is a gem the people of El Paso stepped up to save from being turned into a parking lot. It is beautifully restored to give visitors a glimpse into the past. This is the home of the Plaza Classic Film Fest held every August as well as the performance venue for the El Paso Symphony Orchestra and... More

My family and I attended a concert here last year. The venue is beautiful, the seats are extremely comfortable and we had a great time. We didn't eat or drink anything so really can't comment on that part of the venue.

or what it 1974? Whatever. That same night i got a private room for $2 at the USO/YMCA on Franklin and had a hard time sleeping. Funny how things effect you when you're young.

My wife and I had tickets to see Celtic Woman at the Plaza Theatre and being that it was our first time in El Paso to be honest we tried to manage our expectations. Well, that may have been why we were so overwhelmed by how beautiful and fun the Theatre was. First off let me say that any Theatre... More

When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I remember seeing a magician perform at the Plaza. Nothing about the act has stayed with me, but I remember the beautiful theatre. I remember going to a James Bond film there in the late 1960s or early 1970s. It was still a beautiful theatre, but I don't think I fully... More

My grandmother took one of my sisters and me to see the movie "Hercules" at the Plaza theatre when we were very little. I do not at all remember the movie, but I thought the theatre was beautiful, in the eyes of a child, it was a wonderland. I have since been there for shows and in September 2014 had... More

And excellent place to attend for internationally renowned artists of all genres. It is an historic building well preserved. Located in the heart of downtown. Parking within walking distance, about 1 block away,well-lit at night. Located across the street from El Camino Real Hotel, most luxurious hotel in the city.
