Whether for cinema, theatre entertainment the Plaza is always a pleasure. Great staff, great atmosphere and great building! Cafe is wonderful - the afternoon tea a delight. Well worth a visit.

“A blast of pure beautiful nostalgia.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

"A date with the in laws". I took them to see Cinema Paradiso, a complete tear jerker and award winning Italian film. The Film was lovely but what was absolutely beautiful theatre it was shown in. I was not aware of how well preserved is this Art Deco building. The details are so well preserved/restored, the staff very nice and full of stories of when they actually came into the theatre back in 1932. We came in a 20 minutes before the film started, to our surprise we were treated by a very dextrous organist doing a selection of songs of the period, all accompanied by the multi-coloured lights of the stage. This is theatre is a must see, it really brings history and art deco to life. Al though they do not show the very latest movies, the sound and picture, are fully up to date 3D digital dolby. It is a really fascinating place to visit, plus they have a lounge and a café, it provides most drinks and it dies have a very elegant feel to it. The in laws were very happy with it. The Plaza is very very worth seeing.

“stepping back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Following a major re-fit the Plaza can hold its head up high as the best from the "odeon style" period has been captured. They have a particularly splendid organ, a lovely tea room and a terrific band of volunteers that have helped to bring this iconic building back into use.
