Charleston History Through Postcards

Plaza Theater


When the Plaza Theater opened in 1912, it was called "The Home of High-Class Vaudeville and Novel Attractions.” The theater went out of business in 1919 and was sold. In 1921 it reopened as the Capitol Theater. It closed again in 1982, but was later restored and is now owned and operated by West Virginia State University.
