Plaza Theatre, Palm Springs
It was also an 800-seat playhouse. A famous annual show, the "Village Insanities," later renamed the "Village Vanities." Nationally-broadcast radio programs were hosted from the venue, and it provided a venue for all sorts of local events.
The theater went into a dormancy period in 1989, but the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies were founded. The critically-acclaimed show ran from 1990 to 2014.
The theater has sat unused since then. Recently, a local movement has begun plans to reopen the shuttered landmark. A groundswell of support for the old theater means that hopefully, it will come to life again soon. There are plans to completely renovate and revitalize the venue, with all new seating and infrastructure repairs.
