Gavin Green
Senior Partner
“Kirwin and Simpson were commissioned to... [replicate] the seats originally installed at the Plaza Super Cinema in October 1932. Working with historic photographs and publicity material of the period, they have completed the task by the agreed date to exacting standards. The professionalism, dedication and attention to detail shown by the Company was refreshing; nothing was too much trouble. A job thoroughly well executed.”
