When the Plaza Theatre opened on September 12, 1930, it was heralded as the “Southwest’s most perfect theater” and the largest atmospheric showplace between Dallas and Los Angeles. THE TOUR WILL:

Focus on the Plaza’s design, beauty, and function and why it became, and remains, one of the most beloved spaces in the city.

Open with songs played on the original 1930 Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, featuring Rick Garven, a long-time volunteer Plaza organist.

Discuss the premiers of movies based on Tom Lea novels, The Wonderful Country and The Brave Bulls.
