I attended The Plaza for afternoon tea/ baby shower along with about 15 others. I must say I was quite disappointed. The food was very average and the sandwiches not as fresh as they could have been (possibly due to the fact we had to pre-order due to the number of us and they may have been made a bit... More

Such a lovely theatre -delighted to see the results of what's obviously been a well thought out restoration. Easy access, clean and with a great range of shows at the moment (which are much cheaper than their equivalents in Manchester city centre). Hope this the beginning if it's second hey-day!

The Plaza was Stockports first cinema/ theatre show house - and is the last remaining. The trust and its volunteers have lovingly restored and funded this architectural gem - an absolute must!

This Art-Deco Super-Theatre is a must for all visitors to Stockport. Have a beautiful lunch in their Cafe-Lounge or take a guided tour through it's history and the fantastic theatre, coridors and hallways. You'll be glad you did.

This is really splendid example of what a typical English theatre should beautifully maintained by caring local volunteers who give up their time and do it the keep the identity and future of their community. People should support these kind of projects and I will be giving my support by visiting again soon

I can't believe I have lived and worked near here my whole life, yet Iv never stepped foot inside!! The building is fantastic and a great contrast to other theatres around. Staff were helpful, professional and smartly dressed. Toilets were lovely, I was honestly surprised at the condition of the building and insides. Will be looking out for more enjoyable... More

Lovely example of Art from the early days of cinema and theatre. Lovely afternoon tea and nice to soak up the ambience of an old style cinema.
