A New Venue
The red framework of what was once the Plaza Theater banner now accommodates a new sign. The flashing neon of the old sign is but a memory.
The Plaza Movie Theater opened in 1935 with the backing of Paramount Studios. The first air-conditioned movie theater in Oklahoma! The Plaza District was a destination. It still is today!
A vital part of the Lyric Theater group, this 270 seat setting provides an intimate setting that is aimed at the adventurous theatergoer. Sometimes mature and edgy content are brought to the stage! It also provides a venue for rarely performed musicals, plays, and new works of our talented performers!
The Broadway Musical that was being presented at the Civic Center, downtown in the heart of OKC was flashed on the sign. Professional year round Theater is now a part of Oklahoma. Nationally known Broadway Stars are frequent visitors! Four major shows a year are presented at the Civic Center with a full Orchestra! Four major productions are held at the more intimate Lyric at the Plaza! I have yet to obtain seats as Season ticket holders hold the tickets, but my name is in the pot!
