 All proceeds from museum ticket sales benefit the preservation of this national treasure, The Plaza Cinema (Plaza 1907).

The World's oldest purpose-built cinema in operation, The Plaza Cinema, 209 S. Main St., opened a movie memorabilia museum May 15, 2013.  The exhibit includes an impressive collection of movie props, costumes, scripts, posters and original signed photographs from big screen favorites such as King Kong, Three Musketeers, Hunger Games, Creature from the Black Lagoon and much more. The collections are a joy to see and were acquired with help from the Franklin County Historical Society and special friends.

The museum is a celebration of cinema magic and reflects the films played at The Plaza Cinema over the past 111 years. 

==================================

The oldest purpose-built cinema in operation is 111 years, and was achieved by the Plaza Cinema in Ottawa, Kansas, USA, which has been in operation since 22 May 1907.
