Scalarama London

Where it all started! Since 2011, every September has seen London filled with cinemas – from established picture palaces, to unusual locations such as in cemeteries, under motorways and on canal boats. Across the capital, exhibitors of all shapes and sizes and experiences come together to showcase a month of exciting and adventurous cinema.

Scalarama London is coordinated by Helen and Will. Get in touch via

Scalarama London and the 40th Anniversary of the Scala Cinema is supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery
