Plaza Cinema, Stockport

The Plaza Cinema in Stockport is a cinema in built in the early 1930s in Greater Manchester, England (grid reference SJ895905). It was designed in 1929 although work did not start until three years later, in 1932. It was completed the following year in 1933 and is now a Grade II* listed building, one of few completed in the 1930s within Greater Manchester. After being a bingo hall for many years, it has now been restored as a cinema and theatre, showing classic films and staging live shows.

From March 2009, the volunteers of Stockport Plaza embarked on an ambitious restoration of The Plaza to its original configuration in 1932. Most of the façade has now been unveiled and sports new name sign as well as red and green side panels, all constructed with neon lighting. The entire face has also been completely restored to its original cream ensemble.
