Paris Texas Plaza Theater

Description: Photograph of the Plaza Theatre in downtown Paris, Texas. This is an Art Deco-style building with strong vertical lines, arches, spiral-cut columns, white stone window ledges, column bases, cornice consoles, and dentil contrasts with the red tile roof, window trim, and trim at the ground level. The buff-colored brick of the walls predominate the building and there is also an urn on a pedestal, centered between the windows. The large Plaza Theater sign appears to be the original although the marquee was added after 1984; a theater organ was installed in 1926, probably soon after the building was built. Many classify this building as Moderne style and the ornamentation as Art Deco.
