I love the retro appeal of the tea room here, totally felt transported to the 1920s. They have the most fabulous vintage champagne glasses!

We went to see Russell Kane here last night. Great show. I haven't belly laughed like that for a long time. The Plaza has disabled facilities here but there aren't any disabled parking spaces close to hand if you are thinking of visiting here and use a wheelchair. Ordering the disabled tickets is easy enough as the box office staff were very helpful. There are spaces allocated for disabled patrons at the back of the auditorium and also at the sides of some seating rows. Access is fine, although it was a little chaotic getting in for us as there was a lot of people milling around. Once through that initial hold up though, access to the seats we had was very straightforward. There is a disabled access toilet to the right of the auditorium but be aware that there is a steep slope so getting down on your own is easy enough, but unless you are an Olympian with good upper body strength you may struggle getting back to your seat so keep this in mind! The staff are mostly volunteers who do an excellent job and if you can give a little donation on the way out to contribute to the upkeep of this historical theatre it will be very much appreciated.

We recently visited the plaza for Milkshake Live performance with our three year old. the venue was very clean and well maintained, toilets were acceptable and the general atmosphere was overall a nice environment. the performance was enjoyed and great fun, our daughter loved it. There was also the option to buy refreshments on entry and during the interval which is a great way to support the theatre as we all had a great day out. Would recommend to anyone in the north or near Manchester area, was surprised by the interior as well. Sure it’s all original decor but should just go see for yourself. Sat and had a picnic on the steps over the road by the bridge, in the sun it’s a great little wind trap so just gets the pure sun. This was also a highlight of the trip to Stockport. More...

Originally an Art Deco cinema opened in the 1930s the building has been fully restored to a provide a theater and cinema in the same space. It is staffed by volunteers who were all helpful and is stunning both inside and out. Cinema nights are not normally full and seating is not allocated. More...

Absolutely fantastic Art Deco theatre. To my shame, despite living nearby for several years I had never been. In the stalls at least, there isn't a great deal on the way of legroom and you will surely encounter queues for food, drinks and conveniences, but these are minor quibbles and you have to consider that the venue is coming up to 90 years old. Huge respect to the volunteers.

The staff are great (ran by volunteers) and the venue is beautiful, restored to a high standard and still has its original features including an organ from as far back as the 1930's.Good choice of seating the stage is viewable from pretty much any seat and is good for accessibility needs. More...

What a fab place. Had a fabulous lunch of sausage on brown bread and it was spectacular. The sausage was the best sausage I've ever eaten and it came on a generous plate of salad. Very reasonable price too. So great to see the place so lovingly restored for the future. Be sure to leave a big tip because the staff are volunteers so I've been told More...

We saw the Beach Boyz tribute act last night, brilliant, the band was great, the music and harmonies were perfect, close your eyes and you'd think it was the Beach Boys. Fantastic show. After the show the boys came and met the public and thanked everyone as they were leaving. Well done. Found the staff very helpful and friendly, great night thank you. More...

Came here to the restaurant for afternoon tea and it was great. The decor is quite art deco, cosy, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and great to see the old ladies working away with a smile and a laugh. Food wise, we went for the The Plaza Afternoon Tea selection and the cakes were ace. The mini eclairs and cakes were so good I wish I could order more! Definitely worth a stop! More...

This is a fantastic building. It looks great and has some great gigs, concerts, films etc. I think it's run by a lot of volunteers so it's not the slickest operation but that can be forgiven. There's so much history here and the art deco look make it a wonderful venue. More...

Good venue, easy to get to by train or bus and comfortable seating. On the down side the place needs more bar facilities to reduce queuing and better signage of where the existing bars are. Similarly toilet facilities are not in abundance or perhaps I just didn't find them, don't let this put you off though this is a really nice venue. More...

Went to see the Blossoms on Saturday. All the staff here are very helpful, wonderful Art Deco interior. The snacks are not overpriced, and the toilets are lovely and clean.

If you book you can go for afternoon tea, lovely surroundings and the cakes are to die for! All the waiters and waitresses are really helpful and will go out of there way to assist. This place us really like stepping back in time. Always reminds me of the tv programme Good night Sweetheart!

Excellent place and a must see theatre/cinema venue. Parking is rather limited for such a large place so best to go early to find a space. Check out the excellent variety of events coming up on their website. My boyfriend (Peter) and I recently took a neighbour to watch their excellent live production of Oklahoma. It was fantastic and we were all singing along to the famous songs. More...

Cracking theatre. Lots of choice for entertainment from comedians, live music, films and you can book for a behind the scenes tour. It is run by volunteers who are always collecting for funds to keep the theatre going. A cafe is situated upstairs and there are a couple of bars dotted about selling reasonably priced food and drink. The front of the building has been seen on many TV productions as it is styled in the 1930's theme. Give it a visit as there's not many of these gems around anymore. More...

I enjoy going to the cafeteria at the Plaza, it's reminiscent of a 1930's tea rooms, the staff dressed in uniform applicable to that period. Afternoon tea is just that, relaxing and enjoyable while the world passes by. If you intend to visit on a Saturday, I recommend booking a table as it can, and does, get busy. More...

Good . Stage a bit far from front rows . And toilets are far away from seats. I was seeing the fizz. Formally bucks fizz. They where having a off night running 20 mins late
.lighting and sound issues too ( not the plazas fault ) . So I missed the last 15 mins had to run for my train . The plaza looks nice inside I love old buildings . Nice staff . Would I return , maybe but not for music act .

The Plaza is a marvellous Art Deco cinema and theatre and I really enjoy watching films and shows there. The interior is wonderful. To watch a film there is a great experience - with much more to it than your average multiplex. Ticket prices are good value. I'd visit more often and would've rated it five stars if the process of actually buying tickets from the Box Office was easier. While the staff are nice and helpful, they seem hamstrung by the computer till system and on a number of occasions I've left empty handed as the transaction couldn't be completed. Apart from that The Plaza is well worth a visit. More...
