Happy 80th Birthday to Us!

The Plaza Cinema opened its doors on Monday 10th July 1933, and today, Wednesday 10th July 2013 we celebrate our 80th birthday!

The first film shown here was “King Kong” – said to be the first screening of this film outside London. Originally we had just one screen, with stalls and a balcony. Now, we have four screens. Screen 2 used to be a cafe, believe it or not!

Over the years we’ve hosted a few events, including a premiere screening of Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and recently many special charity performances, including Toy Story 3 3D at midnight in pyjamas!

On behalf of the Plaza Cinema i’d like to thank all our customers, past and present for their support, and wish the Plaza a very happy 80th Birthday! – Dan (Plaza Staff)
