“No good for wheelchair users”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The Plaza is a lovely theatre but if you are a wheelchair user it's not worth going to try and see a show especially a music gig. You either have to sit right at the back of the theatre and can't sit with your companion/friends and struggle to see over the barrier in front! Or you can sit at the side in rows K L or M but if the rest of the audience stands up you can't see but the staff/volunteers won't let you go down the front even though there is staggered seating and despite what management say you don't block or obstruct any aisles. Management try and say it's to do with licensing laws but that's not true because in lots of the other theatres in the UK wheelchair users can sit at the front like everyone else.n

“Everything you need in a Theatre!!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have been going to the Plaza in Stockport most of my life, Saturday films when I was a child, the odd wrestling match. It then turned into a Bingo hall, but thanks to the very very hard working volunteers it us now back to its full glory Art Deco beautiful Theatre. Watch a film see a great show, have a really nice meal or afternoon tea, or just listen to the sounds of a great organ recital. At the end of the year is always a wonderful Pantomime. We Stopfordians are very very lucky to have such a beautiful building still in use!!!!!

“A Unique Experience”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Plaza is worth a trip just to see the superbly-restored interior of this magnificent building. It opened in 1932 as a "Super Luxury Cinema" and its Art-Deco interior takes you back to that "Golden Age". Even if no show is available make time for lunch or afternoon tea in the café and wallow in the nostalgia of wicker chairs, china service and "Nippies"
Fully wheelchair-accessible and if you're seeing a show one of the best wheelchair positions in any theatre. Films and stage shows.
