About the Plaza

The Plaza Theatre, a 1,019 seat proscenium theatre, is a restored and renovated vaudeville and movie house from the 1930s. It hosts a variety of events, including national touring acts, local performance groups, lectures, meetings, and private functions. It also hosts a film series. The theatre is a historic landmark in Glasgow and serves South Central Kentucky.

The theatre was opened in 1934 and built by Bruce Aspley of Glasgow, KY. The theatre was built in the style of a Mediterranean courtyard, with twinkling stars in the ceiling and projected clouds floating across the sky. Bruce Aspley passed the theatre on to his son, Walter "Jigger" Aspley who ran the theatre until 1973 when it was sold. After its purchase, it was soon closed and remained so until the City of Glasgow purchased it. After an 18 month renovation, the theatre reopned on April 17, 2005.

Patrons at the Plaza find themselves immersed in a Mediterranean courtyard, complete with twinkling stars and moving clouds on the dark sky-blue ceiling. All architectural details, including the seats themselves, are original to the 1934 construction and opening. Only the curtains and draperies, the carpet, and the seat foam/upholstery has been replaced. This gives the patron a true sense of what the theatre experience was like in the early 20th century.
