All restoration news

Welcome to our regular update on the Plaza’s exciting restoration and refurbishment, Phase 1 of which was made possible with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund providing a grant of £1.9 million, The North West Regional Development Agency providing £650,000 and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council assisting with a pledge of £300,000 alongside the donations raised from the general public at events and during post show collections all of which have enabled us to save and restore your Plaza Super Cinema and Variety Theatre back to her former 1930’s art deco glory.

The Plaza is still fundraising to continue the next stages of our ongoing maintenance and restoration therefore if you could support us in any way, whether donating a £1 or more on our just giving site to sponsoring a seat plaque, giving to our bucket collections after a screening or show or simply sending a donation we will be eternally grateful.

Join us as we successfully complete further aspects of the astounding Restoration and Maintenance of Stockports 1932 Art Deco Super Cinema and Variety Theatre and detailed below is an update of the project success to date  as we not only return to our community a venue for which they can justly be proud as she serves many future generations to come but also a rare example of a building of international significance that stands out as a beacon of what can be achieved when you have the dedication and drive to save a much loved venue and return her to her magnificent opening day glory….

Keep visiting our site for regular updates and images as your Plaza is restored to her original glory and we look forward to welcoming you to our varied and exciting stage and screen presentations alongside our fully restored Café  which is open daily – Monday to Saturday for light lunches and teas in an environment to evoke the glamour of our 1930’s gem.
