Things to do:

A heartwarming example of David beating Goliath – the Plaza is an independent, volunteer run classic 1930s cinema house: rescued by a concerted local campaign, and now very much at the heart of the Crosby community. And forget threadbare chairs, this is as state-of-the-art as it gets, too.

As well as the money-making blockbusters, The Plaza supports independent films and has a thriving family club and arts and education programme.
