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.
