Or the incredibly strange rise and fall of the world’s wildest cinema and how it influenced a mixed-up generation of weirdos and misfits. From 1978-1993, London’s legendary Scala
was a haven of transgressive and permissive cinema during the politically turbulent, postpunk Thatcher years. The Kings Cross building rumbled from trains underneath while all-nighters,
trash/horror/kung fu double bills, and screenings of battered arthouse prints played in the cavernous auditorium above. Featuring archive footage, eye-popping clips and testimonies from regulars who went on to become famous, this energising documentary explores the power of cinemas to inspire and forge community between outsiders.

Co-directors Ali Catterall & Jane Giles will introduce the screening on Wednesday 6 with a Q&A to follow

The screening on Wednesday 6 in Hereford is sponsored by Aardvark Books
