$100 (90 min) – Tours start at 4:00 PM and 5:30 PM
Over the decades, the building has deteriorated, so the Palm Springs Plaza Theatre Foundation has raised funds to restore the beloved structure to its former glory. Construction is underway, but in this exclusive “hardhat” tour, participants will be able to tour the historic building while it undergoes its restoration and observe first-hand the exciting plans for how the theatre will be transformed.
The theatre’s restoration and rehabilitation will provide essential infrastructure repairs, installation of new theatrical equipment, and structural improvements to ensure that the building meets today’s fire prevention and American Disabilities Act mandates. When the restoration is complete, the Plaza Theatre will be poised to continue to provide the city and its visitors with top-notch entertainment for years to come.
