Scala Cinema, Bangkok

4.6
The Scala is a historic cinema in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located in the Siam Square shopping area, and forms part of the Apex group of cinemas. Opened in 1969, the Scala is the last remaining operational standalone single-screen cinema in the country, and today continues to offer a retro filmgoing experience.
Designed by architect Chira Silpakanok, the building is late Modernist in design with interior decorations in the Art Deco style. The cinema received the ASA Architectural Conservation Award in 2012, but its future remains uncertain as Chulalongkorn University, who owns the land, has announced plans to redevelop the property.
