Fat to revamp Scala Cinema

London’s Scala Cinema building in King’s Cross is being redeveloped as an arts venue and nightclub designed by Fashion Architecture Taste, Fat.

The Scala closed in 1993 after a costly legal battle with director Stanley Kubrick over a screening of A Clockwork Orange.

Fat, which calls itself an “architectural collaboration”, is hand-ling structural work, interiors and graphics. Fat has previously worked on the capital’s Leisure Lounge nightclub.

The venue will primarily be a nightclub but will function seven days a week with bars, a restaurant with a cinema screen and a snooker hall. A gallery space is also mooted, says Sean Griffiths, one of Fat’s directors. The club will open in October.
