Located in Camborne, Cornwall. Built of Cornish stone, this was originally built as St. George’s Hall. It was converted into the Picturedrome, opening in around February 1909. Around 1920 it was re-named Cinedrome.
By 1937, it had been re-named Scala Cinema. The proscenium was 30 feet wide and the stage 14 feet deep. There were four dressing rooms. The cinema also had a dance hall attached.
The Scala Cinema was closed in the early-1960’s. It was converted into a nightclub around 2000. Several managements and name changes later, it was last known as the Corn Exchange Nightclub.
The building was purchased by the JD Wetherspoon chain of pubs in 2010, and after refurbishment, re-opened as one of their pubs on 31st May 2011. It has been named The John Francis Bassett.
The building is Grade II Listed.
