Members of the public will be able to meet the artists who will take turns to staff the gallery which will be open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
The next day on Saturday 5th December  there is the official opening of the Cafebar with music provided by Prestatyn High School pupils. The new Cafebar named Saronies will be under the management of the  Scala Company.

The new Cafebar will provide opportunities for budding artists with jazz nights,comedy nights,poetry readings,book launches and anything else the public want to try their hand at.

Saronie was the person responsible for bringing Cinema to Prestatyn at the turn of the Century. The Scala is the first all digital independent  Cinema in Wales and was rebuilt over a period of 8 years  after the old. Cinema was closed and demolished. The. 1st Scala was one of the few Cinemas to receive the coveted plaque recognizing 100 years of Cinema being shown in the Town. The new Cafebar will recognize this history with a display of photographs recording the Cinema’s proud history as well as art exhibitions and film displays.

Chris Bond the Scala Manager says ‘These next few days will be the next step in developing the Scala as an important Cultural Hub enabling the public to come into one building and experience not only watching film but will be able to make films in our state of the art media training suite, see live operas from New York, see exhibitions and buy the work, listen to music, poetry watch dance and experience many of the local community events we have.

Chair of the Trust Cllr. Rhiannon Hughes says  " As the only all digital independent cinema in Wales with a  media  training suite and art gallery we are able to provide for the people in the areas a variety of art experiences from local national and international sources. We are fastly becoming the leading venue in Wales
