The Plaza Theatre showed its first feature in October 1928. On the opening night bill was Janet Gaynor starring in "Street Angel". The Fox Studio release (filmed before the mid-1930s merger of the 20th Century and Fox Studios) featured a Movietone soundtrack. This was a technological stepping stone between silent films and "talkies". There was no recorded dialogue, but interludes of music and sound effects.
