The Plaza Theatre opened in December 1936 with a screening of "Camille", a tragic love story starring Robert Taylor and Greta Garbo; actor Ralph Bellamy served as master of ceremonies for this event which attracted about 40 Hollywood celebrities. The Theatre was also home for some of the Jack Benny radio broadcasts in the 1940s, along with those of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. The "Village Insanities" revue, a highlight of the Desert Circus of the 1930s and onward, was also staged here.
