Gaumont Harrogate

Located in the Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. The Scala Super Cinema (also known locally as the Picture House) opened on Monday 4th October 1920 with Nazimova in “An Eye for An Eye”. It was part of the New Century Pictures circuit. It had a white terra-cotta and stone facade. Seating was provided in stalls, circle and private boxes. It was equipped with a 4Manual/29 stops Anderson concert organ. The cinema had a cafe attached, for the convenience of its patrons.

It was taken over by the Denman/Gaumont circuit in March 1928; but was not named Gaumont until 12th June 1950.

It closed on 26 September 1959 with Rod Steiger in “Al Capone” and Barry Sullivan in “Wolf Larsen”. The building was sold three days later. It was demolished in 1962 and a Littlewoods store was built on the site.
