The Eagle has landed!
Many aspects of our continuing restoration of The Plaza Super Cinema and Variety Theatre, Stockports 1932 Art Deco gem involve recreating bespoke aspects of the general fixtures and fittings that enhance the stunning beauty of our building alongside the ongoing building fabric restoration and our Cafe Restaurant has taken delivery of this magnificent Italian Rancilio Classe 10 Eagle bedecked boiler and coffee machine which will be serving the finest coffees to our guests in the future.
The installation of our boiler was detailed as one of our Restoration Aspirations for 2015 which you can find on the Restoration Update section of this web site which includes other works currently taking place including the restoration of our main staircase and the expert repair and restoration of our Mighty Compton Organ, details of which can be followed by regularly visiting our Restoration Updates.
Our aim with our boiler was to install a 1930’s styled mechanism that would have links to the era when The Plaza was built therefore by purchasing this Rancilion Classe 10 machine of which only 10 have been manufactured we successfully achieved this as the original Rancilio boilers were created when Roberto Rancilio founded his ‘Rancilio’ company in 1927 in Parabiago,Milan in Italy.
We hope you can join us to enjoy the very finest beverages served from our new Rancilio Boiler and Coffee Machine along with excellent dining and special events in our Cafe Restaurant in the very near future and experience the very finest dining of today in the most sumptuous surroundings of yesterday…
