Should you come to Plano from a hustling and bustling city... you might get bored at night (like yours truly). I usually end up at Wal-Mart browsing and doing my grocery shopping late at night.
Aside from hanging out at The Shops at Legacy, which has restaurants opened till late and watching a movie.... I am still looking for places to hang out.
The theatre is a restored historic downtown building. In the 1880 and 1890’s Plano had several opera house. Most were located on the second floor of buildings over businesses. On this site an opera house was opened over Kendricks agricultural implement store but after a fire in 1905, the city built the civic auditorium on H Avenue. This theatre offers a wide range of entertainment from national art exhibits to vocal and theatre performances. The Plano Repertory is permanently based here.
The Courtyard Theatre has just recently (2002) been housed in a 1930’s school gymnasium which has been renovated into a 360 seat performing arts theatre. The Theater serves many Plano performing arts groups.
