An older iconic cinema theater, stop by if you've time to kill. Don't expect much in quality, but focus on gaining an experience instead.

This is the oldest still running cinema in Thailand. It have a retro look and old style layout. I liked it and the tickets are also low priced. I did notice that they are also running some old classic movies there as well.

A real retro cinema, just like the Lido cinema. They still issue old style tickets with the seat numbers written on and use ushers to show you to your seat. Seats are very comfortable.
