This theatre is one of El Paso's most beautiful places to attend a function. Be it music, movies, comedy, or one of the many Broadway shows that come through town. Once you step into the venue, you'll understand the beauty and history of this majestic place.

I took my daughters(teens) to a "Miranda Sings" stand up comedy show. I loved the place everything was very well organized from ticket area to sitting. The sound and lighting were great. Looking forward to another visit here!

The restoration of the Plaza Theatre is magnificent. Unfortunately, if you're sitting through a performance, the seats are not equally great - there's far too little leg room regardless of seating location.

The Plaza stands out as one of Americas finest small venues. Different than most old community theatres in the southwest, the Plaza has an opulance and ornateness that may be unmatched among its kind. Beautifully restored - including the awesome original organ - and updated with largely un-seen technology to make for excellent sights and sounds. IT IS GORGEOUS! Old... More

this used to be a great theatre, but the wisdom of the local leadership has made it so that it is way too expensive to go to a show there. Like everything else in El Paso, these are little people trying to be big time by just raising their prices. This is not Dallas or New York or San Francisco.

I was nervous as to what to expect from the outside as I can be picky about my theatres. However, ounce I stepped inside I was very surprised. The inside was tastefully decorated in an outside southwestern style. Nicely done bringing the outdoors indoors. The theatre itself was in the old world charm but was comfortable and the sound was...

My husband and I saw a few shows here and it was always a great night out. You can use it as a chance to dress up nice or go in jeans and a nice shirt. The theater is kept in great condition and the atmosphere is just a really nice comfy feeling for a night out. I will definitely... More

I was given tickets to Celtic Woman at this theater. It was awesome and the sound system brought every nuance even to the farthest seats. I would give it a five star rating but the farthest seats were where we were sitting and they were still super expensive. No one in the last 5 rows could sit straight. There was... More

I saw the play Annie at the Plaza Theater this week and it was great. But the highlight for me was the theater. The lights are still blinking on the ceiling as I remembered from when I was a teen watching a movie. The seating is roomy, and the renovations have highlighted the best of the theater? Definately a good... More
