Dating back to 1930, “inhabitants” at the Plaza Theatre have been known to have some fun with lights, bathroom stalls and curtains. Performers and patrons have claimed to see orange lights and creepy movements back stage. For those not seeking a ghost hunt, visit the Plaza Theatre during their Broadway season or catch a flick at the Plaza Classic Film Fest next August.
