I did three weeks of relief projectionist work at Bath, Somerset during the mid-1960’s. During that time I had lodgings at Brougham Hayes on the Bristol side of Bath. Near to my lodgings was a large Co-operative Supermarket that looked as if it was built into a former cinema. I visited it several times and remember that the food section was on the ground floor and the clothes section was in what must have been the balcony which had been extended across the length of the building. I’m guessing that the name of the supermarket (Scala)was the name of the former cinema.
The Victory Cinema was built and opened around 1919. It was re-named Oldfield Picture House in the late-1930’s and closed as the Scala Cinema in the early-1960’s. It became a supermarket in 1962.
