Since its construction in the 1940s, the beautiful Plaza Theatre has served as a landmark and focal point for the city of Garland area. The Plaza has been extensively renovated in the Art Deco style to mirror the splendor of a bygone age, bringing it to its pinnacle of glory.
Guests enter the 350-seat theatre through the huge domed lobby area, which has a magnificent chandelier. The theatre is equipped with cutting-edge lighting and sound systems. When it comes to theater-going, the Plaza delivers the best in comfort and style, thanks to its plush velvet seating and motorized waterfall curtain.
The Plaza Theatre is the ideal venue for the most prestigious business meetings, concerts, receptions, and all other special event stage productions in the region.
It also houses awe-inspiring paintings of historic downtown Garland by nationally renowned artist Bruce Cody, which may be found at this Garland treasure.
In addition to on-street parking, two parking garages located at 5th Street Crossing (west side of Fifth Street, across from the Granville Arts Center) and Austin Street are also accessible for visitors to use (south side of Austin Street, across from the Granville Arts Center and behind City Hall). All parking is free and available to the general public.
Throughout the year, the Plaza Theatre in downtown Garland will host a number of free movies presented by the City of Garland and its partners. All of the shows are general admission and are first-come, first-served. There are no tickets necessary.
This historic theater in the heart of downtown Garland has been lovingly renovated. Because it is a small theater, there aren’t any awful seats to be found. In addition to the reasonable costs and excellent entertainment, there are plays and live musical events at the venue. The walls are decorated with beautiful original work by ancient Garland.
Located on the downtown square for more than 50 years, first as a movie theater and then for many years as a live theatre venue, this establishment has served the community well. They broadcast anything from children’s theater to music concerts. Despite the fact that it is a small venue, the acoustics are quite good.
The Plaza Theatre, which was formerly known as The Big G Jamboree in the early 1970s, has a vintage exterior but has been entirely restored inside in the Art Deco style of the 1940s era, giving it a whole new aspect. Whatever event takes place in this building is always a good time.
