News About This Theater
- Dec 14, 2007 — Many Brussels Cinemas added to Cinema Treasures
The Scala Cinema is one of the older cinemas to operate in central Brussels. It opened in 1896 as a cafe-concert venue. In 1900, films were being screened in its 500 seat auditorium. In 1927, it was given a make-over in an Art Deco style and the seating capacity was increased to 960. In 1976, the balcony was converted into a second screen.
It is located adjacent to the former Eldorado Cinema of 1932 (now operating as the UGC-de-Brouckere), which has now been sub-divided into eight-screens.
UGC took over the Scala Cinema in 1992 and sub-divided it into four-screens, which are now included as part of the UGC-de-Brouckere, plus in recent years a screen built on the roof of the building which gives the entire cinema complex a total of 13 screens.
