Kirwin & Simpson Seating

Art Deco

In August 2014 we installed brand new auditorium seating at the Stockport Plaza. The brief was to replicate the original seating installed when the Plaza first opened back in 1932, however, this had to be done mostly using black and white photographs. The Plaza is very proud of the refurbishment and we are very happy to have played such a key role in restoring the Art Deco Cinema and Theatre back to its former glory.

The Plaza, Stockport

‘“Kirwin and Simpson was commissioned by Stockport Plaza Trust to develop, manufacture and install cinema seating that replicated 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.”
