History in the Making
From 1917 to the present...


Bruce Aspley began his career in the theater business in 1917 when he purchased the Lyon Opera House, which he remodeled and reopened as the Trigg Theatre. Money from this successful operation was used to finance the building of his dream, the Plaza Theatre. He traveled widely in the late 1920's looking for ideas to incorporate in this new movie house. 
Construction of the building, designed by local architect, Dixon Rapp, began in the spring of 1930. Financial difficulties caused by the Great Depression made it necessary to proceed only as funds became available. The construction took four years to complete. According to Aspley family sources, the tile and sculptures were imported from Italy. The Plaza became the second air conditioned building in Glasgow, the Trigg Theatre being the first. Sound was provided by a state of the art RCA system. Three giant projectors were installed to show multi-reel movies.
