Interview: Jane Giles on the ‘Scala Cinema 1978-93’ book

by Stuart Wright


FAB Press have launched a new Indiegogo Campaign to raise the funds to publish an ambitious oversized art book about the life and times of London’s iconic SCALA CINEMA 1978-1993. Written by the cinema’s former programmer Jane Giles, the book runs to 400 large format illustrated pages including full-page / full-colour reproductions of all 178 monthly Scala programmes, plus behind-the-scenes photos and ephemera.

In this interview with host Stuart Wright, writer Jane Giles talks about her new book Scala Cinema 1978-93 – London’s iconic film (and music) venue for those chasing down the unusual and off beat – and the indiegogo campaign to help get it published.

The Scala had magic. It was like joining a club – a very secret club, like a biker gang or something … they could show films uncut because they had memberships, well that’s insane! It’s like they were a country club for criminals and lunatics and people that were high … which is a good way to see movies – John Waters

The indiegogo campaign is open until Thursday 8 March 2018. Help make publishing the book happen at www.indiegogo.com/projects/scala-cinema-book-by-fab-press-london/x/8976639#/

For just £60.00 you can get the Collector’s Edition of the book, gold embossed on a black cloth cover in a stunningly designed heavy duty protective slipcase PLUS you get your name printed at the back of the book! Price includes FREE shipping in the UK.
