“Great little cinema ”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

I was struck again how lucky I am to live in Skipton and what makes it the best place to live. One attraction is the Plaza Cinema. It has everything a large cinema has - seats, screen, films, popcorn - but cheaper and friendlier! They only have one screen but show multiple films in one day, some even in 3D.

“Lovely cinema”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Such a lovely cinema. Single screen with balcony & stalls seating - very comfortable. Very retro with a nice drinks area in the foyer. The ticket office is vintage too. Great sound quality. The staff were really helpful - a real experience.

“Please don't hold-it against us”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Please don't hold-it against us, but we're over 65, and are from the south, we had visited Skipton about 25 years ago and every couple years would visit the area, and from the very first visit we knew we would love to live here, so when we retired we did. We do all our shopping and support as many other business's as possible, but must admit had not visited the Plaza cinema until yesterday, although we wished we had before now, what a treat !!! it took as back in time to the 1950's but don't let this put you off from going, with a single large screen, very good sound quality, with a balcony and comfortable seating, it would be a great treat for any body, young and old alike. So please treat yourselves.

“A lovely old cinema!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I am a regular visitor to the Plaza cinema in Skipton and always enjoy my visits. It is a single screen cinema that has retained all the features of bygone days so you can enjoy comfortable seating and can sit in the balcony if you wish! I do tend to choose which films I want to watch here as some of the modern films are better seen on larger screens and in cinemas with better sound systems, particularly musicals such as "Les Miserables". Refreshments are available in the foyer and the prices are really good. The cost of seeing a film here is very reasonable and they do discounts for Senior Citizens. I once visited on a Wednesday afternoon and was amazed by the number of Seniors there; the cinema was full and not a spare seat anywhere. It is good to see this traditional cinema thriving and long may this continue. Well worth a visit!

“I love an old cinema!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We always make a point of finding old non multiplex cinemas when we are on holiday. There arent many left .This one was one of our favourites. We sat in the circle seats which were very comfy. The current manager /owner has spent a lot of time collecting film posters and memorabilia and as we visited in october had a halloween theme. We went past during the day and it was busy as they were showing a kids film. We went to watch Captain Phillips and were pleased at the seat cost and cost of food. So very different to our last multiplex visit. Still showing pearl and dean adverts and had an interval. There werent many of us in though.

Try and make a point of fitting a film in when you are in Skipton the cinema needs your support
