Plaza Cinema

Located in the southeast London district of Plumstead. The Plumstead Cinematograph Theatre was opened on 7th September 1911, with 600 seats.

In 1931, it was re-modeled in an Art Deco style and re-named Plaza Cinema. It was operated by London & District Cinemas Ltd. The Plaza Cinema was taken over by the Granada Theatres Ltd. circuit on 24th November 1946.

It was closed on 11th December 1954 with Neville Brand in "Riot in Cell Block 11" and Sterling Hayden in "Arrow in the Dust". The building was empty for several years until September 1961, when it was converted into a retail store. It was later demolished and a Woolworth’s store was built on the site. Woolworth’s went out of business in the UK in January 2009.
