Parkway Cinemas

The 6-screen Plaza Cinemas opened on 25th May 2001 with a total seating capacity of 970-seats. It was operated by Graves (Cumberland) Ltd., a family company which was established in 1910 and is based in Cumbria. It was closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in April 2021 that the closure would be permanent. The Graves family were hoping to open a new cinema at a different location in the town and in 2021 they opened the 3-screen Ritz Cinema (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The former Plaza Cinemas were taken over by the Parkway Cinemas chain and were totally remodeled and refurbished in a £4 million+ makeover. The Parkway Cinemas has luxury leather recliners, 4K laser projection and 3D plus Dolby stereo sound. It reopened on March 17, 2023.

I was given a very warm welcome when I visited on Thursday 19 October 2023 to see “The Miracle Club”. As intimated in the Overview, the transformation is stunning: there is even a ‘red carpet’ to welcome patrons! The staff were especially enthusiastic; with Halloween approaching the foyer had been suitably decorated, and the staff were suitably attired! This is a real credit to Gerald Parkes' legacy.
