In 1936, the historic 800-seat Plaza Theatre opened with the world premiere of George Cukor’s Camille, starring Robert Taylor and Greta Garbo. The Theatre featured fanciful village facades carved into the walls and twinkling star-like lights on the ceiling. It was then leased to Earl Strebe, the town’s first film exhibitor, who showed first-run movies and presented depression-era live radio shows.
Over the years, the Theatre was the venue for memorable performances by stars such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. In addition, performers Jack Benny, Bob Hope, and The Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy Show broadcast radio show from the Plaza, bringing national attention to Palm Springs.
