Anyone who remembers camping out at the Scala in Kings Cross to watch dodgy movies that were at the time probably against the law while the rats frolicked and the cinema cats licked their behinds and paid them no mind at all will be relieved to hear that Scala Forever – a kind of tribute to that edgiest of all cinema clubs – is somewhere much nicer. And what better time to check it out than when they’re playing a very Scala double bill of old John Waters/Divine movies from back in the 70s? The films in question are Female Trouble and Desperate Living (both highly outrageous!), the time is 7.30pm, the day is Sunday 14th August and the venue, The Roxy Bar and Screen (we like their priorities down there at the Roxy), 128 Borough High Street. It has been called the coolest cinema venue in London if not the whole UK and you can just pitch up, though if you did want to reserve a sofa you would have to become a member. You will have to take your own rats if you did want to recreate the real Scala vibe. Which is a joke, by the way. No one take rats to a cinema, please. Not ever.
