Plaza Theatre

The Plaza Theatre has been in operation since 1930 and is one of the largest venues to catch a show in the entire Southwest. It hosts stage shows and also screens movies, but most people that come are awestruck by the grandiose Spanish Colonial architecture and design. The Plaza was nearly demolished in 1986, however a benevolent community association stepped in to save it. Today, guests can see many diverse shows on stage, from popular musicals and stand-up acts to concerts.

Abraham Chavez Theater

If you happen to be in El Paso and prefer live theater and performance art, then head to the Abraham Chavez Theater. It is located right near the larger El Paso Convention Center and the architecture resembles that of a spaceship. Nonetheless, access to the theater is convenient, with a seating arrangement that can accommodate approximately 2500 people. It is one of the best places to catch a show.
