Plaza Cinema

Located in Guildford, Surrey. This was originally opened as the Central Hall Picture Palace in July 1910 with seating provided for 600. In 1923 it was re-named Central Picture Palace. It was taken over by the County Cinemas chain in October 1930, and was re-named Plaza Cinema. In September 1939, it was taken over by the Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres Ltd.

The Plaza Cinema was closed by Circuit Management Association on 29th September 1956 with Kenneth Moore in “Reach For the Sky”. It was boarded up and lay unused for several years, and after 1960 was later converted into a bingo club. Since around 2001, it became the Drink nightclub. By 2014 it was the Casino nightclub.

A 1991 view of the former Plaza, looking like Bingo had recently closed.

I recall the Plaza being a dance hall/disco & music venue in the early 1970’s
