Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.
Built in 1929 on the site of the early 1890s built Oxford Theatre which later became the Colonial No 1 and the De Luxe. The Plaza, which had seats on one level, with no balcony, was converted into the Sydney Cinerama theatre using the 3 projector system. When the Plaza closed, the interior of the building including the Spanish Renaissance style auditorium were protected by a Listed building order and the decorative features were covered over. When Planet Hollywood took over the auditorium section of the building to convert it into a restaurant, they 'forgot' about the decorative features and removed them all in 1994-95. The entrance foyer has been preserved as the entrance to a McDonald's Restaurant which uses this section of the building.
