The History Of Scala Prestatyn
The oldest one screen cinema in North Wales, Prestatyn’s Scala Cinema was open from 1913 to its closure in 1999. A popular and much loved cinema, the original Scala was a crucial part of Prestatyn’s heritage and community.
Now it has been reborn as an ambitious, cutting edge cinema and arts venue for the whole of North Wales to enjoy. The Scala certainly has a colourful story to tell. Established by cinema pioneer Saronie (real name James Roberts) established the Scala in the Prestatyn Town Hall and ran it until his retirement in 1963, sadly passing away in 1967.
The Scala entertained generations of Prestatyn residents through the golden age of cinema in the 1930’s and 1940’s with queues regularly half way up the High Street.
With the ascendance of multiplex cinemas it was much harder for the Scala to compete, and as with most local cinemas, the Scala closed. However, due to the vision and persistence of a number of local residents, the dream of a new Scala rising from the ashes of the old was created. Over the past few years, this dream has become real.
