The Glow of the silver screens: A Nostalgic Delve into the golden era of Bambino and Scala Cinema Karachi


Welcome to our video about the history of Bambino and Scala cinemas in Karachi – two iconic landmarks of the city’s entertainment scene! These cinemas were among the first to bring the magic of cinema to the people of Karachi in the decade of the 60s. Bambino Cinema opened its doors in 1963 and became a popular attraction for movie-goers with its Art Deco-style architecture. The iconic cinema was the first in Karachi to install air conditioning, and it quickly became a hub for the city’s film industry. Over the years, the Bambino Cinema became a popular destination for local and international films. Scala Cinema, on the other hand, was established in the 1970s and soon grew to become one of the popular cinemas in Karachi, with a seating capacity of 144 people. Unfortunately, both cinemas were affected by the decline in the film industry during the 1980s and 90s. Today, Scala Cinema still stands as a testament to the golden age of cinema in Karachi and continues to attract movie-goers with its rich history and cultural significance.
