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
An anarchic, uproarious, and ultimately heart-breaking documentary telling the riotous inside story of London’s legendary Scala cinema, 1978-1993.
You may remember we welcomed programmer and author Jane Giles to Abertoir a few years ago to talk about the wonderful Scala Cinema and its maverick existence. Now, from book to the big screen – we didn’t hesitate for a second when we heard of a brand new documentary. If you attended her talk and thought you heard everything, think again! With wickedly funny anecdotes and a true sense of nostalgia, this is an absorbing and entertaining look at a cinema and its people that dared to carve their own place in history.
