Synopsis:
Archive footage, eye-popping movie clips, acid-crazed animation and famous names collide to tell the story of London's infamous, influential Scala cinema. With its cracked marble floors, resident cats and mysterious, extrasensory rumblings, the Scala was magical and a refuge from the violence of Thatcher's Britain. Hilarious, irreverent and ultimately heartbreaking with a fabulous original score by Barry Adamson, Scala!!! is more than mere nostalgia - it's an X-rated love letter and a universal shout-out to the power of cinemas to inspire young minds and create a sense of community for outsiders. A place where everyone is welcome.
