The Scala

Designed by H Courtney Constantine the Kings Cross Cinema first opened its doors in 1920. Renamed The Scala in 1981 it soon became the home of London's coolest cult cinema club, unfortunately after losing a court case over screening Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (which was still banned at the time) the cinema was forced to close in 1993. After a complete refurbishment it reopened in 1999 as a club and gig space in the heart of London. Boasting three bars, two dancefloors and a stage with regular club nights and an impressive line-up of live music. Everyone from Coldplay and Foo Fighters to Robbie Williams and Dido have since graced the stage at Scala.

Please note all shows at Scala are 18+ unless otherwise stated.

Scala is three minutes walk from Kings Cross St Pancreas train station; bus numbers 30, 73, 214, 10, 17, 45, 46, 63, 91 and 259 all stop near the venue.

Allo Darlin'

Allo Darlin' are many things. They can turn a room in a famous punk venue into a joyous, jumping, sweaty, pop-mosh pit.
