Located in the Porte Saint-Denis district in the northeast of central Paris. La Scala was originally a music hall which opened in 1900. It was screening films as part of its music hall programme by 1903.

It was modernised in 1936 to the plans of architect Maurice Gridaine and given an Art Deco style and was operating as a cinema. In the early-1980’s it was converted into a 5-screen cinema and closed by 1993. By August 1997 it had reopened and was screening adult films. The Scala had closed by 1993, and in 2014 the building is still shuttered and unused. In the summer of 2016 work began on renovating the building, with plans to re-open in 2018.
