Located in Consett, County Durham, at the corner of Wesley Street and Victoria Road. The Plaza Cinema was opened around 1929. I was built for the towns' Ann Street Garage. Seating was provided in stalls and circle levels. The proscenium was 30 feet wide, and there was a small stage and several dressing rooms. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system.
In 1936, a new company Consett Cinemas Ltd. was formed to take over the Plaza Cinema (they later also took over the Empire Cinema in Consett). It was equipped to screen CinemaScope films in 1955.
The Plaza Cinema was closed in February 1974. It was converted into a bingo club, last operated as a Walkers Bingo Club, which was still open in 1998. Since closed, it has been demolished and shops have been built on the site, occupied in 2013 by Home Bargains & Peacocks.
