The Scala Cinema opened in 1928 and had a seating capacity for 450 in stalls and circle. In 1966 it was taken over by Wedgewood Cinemas Ltd. and re-named Wedgwood Cinema. It was closed on 26th October 1980 with “Rabid” and “Dead of Night”.
Taken over by Peter Moore, who operated several other cinemas in the area, it was re-opened. Later, he was convicted in 1996 and given a life sentence, for the killing of four gay men in 1995.
After he was jailed the cinema went to new owners, and and for a brief period it was last known as the Futura Cinema.
After closing in April 1996, the auditorium was used as a secondhand furniture store for a while, and the front part of the building became a video hire library. In 2009, the building is in a derelict condition and has been granted planning permission to be turned into eight apartments. The building is currently being offered for sale at a price of £215,000
