a new round up is needed...
I might need to ask you to find out but im sure Centre City tower had to have a small theatre or cinema when it was built to replace one that was lost. Would that be related?Because I'm bored, tired and very ill right now, I'm going to do the same to you lot and bore you with unnecessary local history. :sleepy:
Scala House stands on the site of Scala Cinema. It was opened on 4 March 1914 and in its earlier days was famous for its 12-piece orchestra. On 4 June 1960, the 859-seat cinema closed and was demolished to make way for the new ring road. A new Scala Cinema was built on the same site.
What a waste of peoples emotions then announcing the £556m pound propoposed plan. We all get excited and in all honesty wont hear anything for some time, and probably until the Mail has an attempt at journalism to report the story.BT Tower cant stay forever especially with the amount of highrises going up in close proximity! think it will be a few years yet until anything is proposed.
I don't these two are connected. I think Scala House was a cinema before being converted into a pug-ugly office block. The reason why there is a theatre/ cinema under CCT is because the council said that for it to receive approval it needed to provide a public facility. But the theatre ultimately failed as it was so close to Scala, the Alex and others.I might need to ask you to find out but im sure Centre City tower had to have a small theatre or cinema when it was built to replace one that was lost.

I hope that is not the case. I would like to think that with all this investment into the area, the pub would actually see an increase in customers. Plus, the building is listed so whilst the pub may go, which is a shame, the building will not.
