Got your shades on? Yes? Ok well now you can look upon possible the most dazzling, overpowering and downright wild cinema exterior I’ve ever seen. Welcome to the Plaza theatre, El Paso, Texas circa 1962.
Yes once you actually got inside to watch Dr. No you probably wouldn’t have be able to see anything as your eyes would have been overload with all that ballyhoo showmanship outside. Now how about we all go and watch Hitchcock’s The Birds? Shades at the ready?
The Plaza Theatre started life in 1930 and operated as a multi-purpose venue, hosting theatre productions, music concerts and of course film screenings. Over the decades it had it’s up and downs but we’re happy to report that it’s still open and going stronger than ever now, thanks to an extensive refit back in 2006. The best thing? Check out how it looks now, yes it’s still trying to destroy your eyeballs with light!
