Guy Baker’s Paramount Picture Theatres Ltd. opened the Plaza Cinema some time prior to 1944. Sound was by a an A.W.H. sound system and 500 seats were provided at rates of 9d to 1/10d. Two dressing rooms were provided for use on the occasional stage performance. Programmes were changed three times per week and performances were continuous in the evenings and from 2.30pm on Saturdays.
The sound system was changed to a British Acoustic one by 1966 and prices had risen to 1/– to 2/6d. CinemaScope had been fitted some time around 1960. The end came with the death of Guy Baker in 1983 when all his cinemas were closed as a sign of respect, and when no-one came forward to take over the Plaza Cinema, and it was permanently closed.
