A Night at The Plaza: Exploring the History of The Plaza

Well, what a night! Thank you to everyone who joined us for the wonderful A Night at The Plaza with Harry Clayton-Wright.

The night brought The Plaza back to life through a whole host of brilliant performances, talks and viewings exploring the storied life of The Plaza. Originally built as part of Leeds Grand Theatre it became a cinema in the early 20th century and became nicknamed ‘The Plaza’ in the late fifties. With a programme of art films and B movies, it would show a more ‘alternative’ side of cinema.

A Night at The Plaza is part of our Hidden Histories of New Briggate project. The project is supported by Leeds City Council and Historic England as part of the New Briggate High Street Heritage Action Zone regeneration programme.
