Restoration Update – 11.08.13
Sunday 11th August 2013 will be remembered forever in the history of The Plaza as the day that the official restoration of our Circle commenced, returning her to her original location and restoring the architectural integrity of this area of our Art Deco Super Cinema and Variety Theatre.
Over the next two weeks all of the seating which is currently being removed from the Circle will be taken away and put back in situe once the tiered steps are restored in their correct 1932 location with replicas of the smaller ‘treads’ returned to their original placements on wooden boards covered since 1937 all of which will be repaired where required. The restoration and redocoration of the plaster has already commenced and replica handrails will be created off site and eventually reinstated.
In 2014 we aim to fit replica carpets and seating, exact matches for the 1932 decorative upholstery and floor coverings and will be launching a fundraising appeal in the very near future but for now keep joining us on this page over the next two weeks to see the Circle Restoration works as they unfold…..
