To contrast with the above pictures, here are two photos of the Plaza as a Mecca Bingo Hall, taken in 1988:–

The great thing with this theatre is that the people working there LOVE the building and are so proud of it – this really is apparent to visitors.

The work just completed is not the end of the restoration – new projects are still in the pipeline to further enhance the Plaza. This one of just a handful of “super-cinemas” remaining in the UK where you can still enjoy a movie with full 1930’s atmosphere.
