About the Plaza Theatre

The Plaza Theatre in Downtown Palm Springs opened in 1936 with the premiere of the George Cukor film, “Camille,” attended by its legendary star, Greta Garbo. Over the years, the theatre was the venue for memorable performances by entertainment giants Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

Performers Jack Benny, Bob Hope, and The Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy Show broadcast live radio shows from the Plaza. The Plaza Theatre was declared a Class 1 Historic

Site in 1991. The theatre is in dire need of repair and restoration and the City of Palm Springs is committed to bringing it back to its original luster as the heart of the city. The restoration of the building is managed by Plaza Theatre Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
