The Scala Cinema (façade), Worcester Street, Wolverhampton
The Scala Cinema (fašade), Worcester Street, Wolverhampton
This is all that remains of the row of small shops and businesses that formerly lined Worcester Street from between Little Brickiln Street and the original merging point with the Penn Road. Demolition has left a large triangle of land that is to be redeveloped, with due scrutiny by Wolverhampton Council. Luckily, the fašade is to be integrated into the new development when it eventually materialises*. LinkExternal link

* No, it was demolished circa 2013!!


George Peck writes this: There were shops all along Worcester Street, and the Scala Picture House was near the bottom. It was a big picture house with an arched roof. It faced Church Street and was one of the first to have a musician playing to the audience in the break, a violinist. He was a little Jewish chap with a hunch back, called Loui Rennie. He was a good violinist.
