About The Plaza

Welcome to the Plaza

A very warm welcome to The Plaza Super Cinema and Variety Theatre web site where you can find information about the North West’s home of Big Screen and Live Stage Entertainment here in the North of Cheshire, close to the heart of Manchester along with details of our Café, Hospitality and Events, latest news and of course updates on the Maintenance and Restoration of our Art Deco gem which has served her community for over 80 glorious years.

In October 1932 a vision was born for Stockport and the Northwest in the form of a Super Cinema and Variety Theatre that would evoke the glamour of the era with its sumptuous surroundings, highest possible attention to detail in its customer care and an eclectic mix of screen and stage presentation, supported by the finest Café dining experience in the region.

Over 80 years on and your Plaza Super Cinema and Variety Theatre stills hosts the biggest stage presentations including this year’s sensational family pantomime Peter Pan, musicals, stage plays, comedians, concerts and family shows alongside classic films presented in their correct ratio and format ensuring the golden classics can be seen on the big screen as they should be enjoyed.

With our on-going maintenance and restoration appeal dedicated to develop and maintain the Plaza acclaimed as the UK’s finest example of its genre and a building of international significance your support in joining us for a future event helps us preserve this magnificent building for future generations and enables us to serve you for many more years to come…

I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the Plaza in Stockport in person in the very near future…
