The Scala

Category: Live music venues

Scala is a nightclub in London, England, near King’s Cross railway station.

The Scala was originally built as a cinema in 1920, known as the King’s Cross Cinema. The cinema changed hands and names several times through its life and also changed focus, ranging from main-stream to art-house to adult film over 70 years.

The Scala cinema was closed in 1993 after declaring bankruptcy and in 1999 the current club was opened.

The cinema had been refitted, with the lower seating area incorporating the new stage, DJ booth and dancefloor, while the upper seating area incorporated a second room and a DJ booth.

Scala now plays host to many eclectic club nights, including Popstarz, and has featured live music acts including Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Moby, Wheatus, Super Furry Animals and The Chemical Brothers.
