Logo for the The Plaza StockportThe Plaza Super Cinema and Variety Theatre is a unique Grade II Listed building that has survived almost intact, in its original use, making it a rare example of this building type in the north of England. It is operated by a Charitable Trust with the specific intention of restoring it to its former glory. There has been little intervention work since its construction in 1932 and many alterations are reversible. At present, The Plaza is functioning but is far from restored. Together with further remedial work, there is the huge task of reinstating the original features that separate The Plaza from most other surviving Super Cinema buildings.
