Cine City in the Withington district of Manchester opened around 1912 as the Scala Electric Palace. By 1969 it was operated by the Ward Cinema Circuit. Closed in 1997 and re-opened the same year by a new owner. Cine City closed again in July of 2001 and remained closed. The building was threatened with demolition in 2005 but heritage groups fought to save the building. All was in vain and the Cine City was demolished in January 2008. The site is an empty plot of land in 2014.
