This cinema is owned by the Mundin Family. Who also own and operate The Ritz Cinema in Belper Derbyshire, and The Regal Cinema in Melton Mowbray. A fantastic refurbishment

Cinematreasures, there was not a cafe, and the seating was in stadium format with a balcony with no overhang

Could anyone confirm if the proscenium and auditorium ceiling have been altered or hidden, looking at some photographs it certainly was the case and being a listed building had to be restored?

Magic and Mayhem, the North of Englands largest soft play centre opened on the 20 September 2014. The centre currently occupies the former stalls.

The circle will be subdivided to form a 300 seat cinema auditorium and a stage will be constructed for shows, live acts, music. A Café/Bar will be provided in the former café.

The building has again found a new lease of life. The auction room, gym and betting office have closed and the building has been gutted. In what was the auditorium, the space has been opened up again for the first time since the 1940/1950s. Revealing the walls of the old cinema and old corn exchange. The building is now an upmarket café/restaurant and bar now known as the Kino, harking back to the days when it was a cinema.

I have uploaded some photographs of the refurbished auditorium of the Scala. The cinema was refurbished in time of the cinema’s 100th anniversary in September 2013. And is believed to be 2nd oldest cinema in the UK. New seats, carpets, screen, digital projection, speakers and catering/box offices stands have been installed.
