Did You Know?

The Kings Cross Cinema (Scala), was nearing completion when the First World War began in 1914. The partially completed cinema was first used to manufacture airplane parts, and after 1918 as a local labour exchange for demobilized soldiers returning from the war.

Things got a bit hairy in the 1970s as it started to show adult films.


Out of Kings Cross station, turn left and the Scala is located on the right.
