The 1,500-seat Plaza Theatre was built by Bruce Aspley and opened in 1934 with the Harold Lloyd movie The Cat’s Paw , although the theatre was originally announced in the Spring of 1931 and construction started sometime thereafter.
In 1973 Bruce Aspley sold the theatre to the Slinker family, who exhibited movies and rented the theatre to local groups.
The theatre closed in the 1990s and was purchased by the City of Glasgow in September 2001. Subsequently the theatre underwent renovation and reopened in April 2005. It now comfortably seats 1,034 (Main Floor 783, Balcony 243).
