Scala Theatre

The Grand Dame of Bangkok cinemas, Scala was completed way back in 1969.

Despite a few redevelopment scares over recent years, Scala Theatre looks set to stay for the long haul.

The cinema’s old-school facade, complete with marquee signage, makes for Instagram gold, and so too does the imposing flight of stairs that leads up to the Art Deco atrium with its shimmering chandelier.

The price for new-release films typically comes in at THB120—and, while you don’t get all the mod-cons of the shiny new cinemas, that’s a real steal. They don’t make them like they used to.

Price: Starting at THB120
