This nostalgic site closed in May 2018. One of the original Siam Square classic cinemas-- along with the Scala and Siam theaters.

Glorious days gone

There is nothing to see here at this point. Siam Square and the three movie theaters; Scala, Siam, and Lido were the three places offered top quality movies. I was in BKK near Siam Square this time and the place is closed. Sad but accept the reality but I got pletnty of time to explore the new Siam Sqaure andd other shopping malls around the area.

Classic oldie

Scala and Lido have long been theatres for movie lovers. Not many screens, nor modern like others. But packed with quality movies. Well chosen. Vintage and retro.

Old fashioned Cinema experience
Mar 2018
This place was great. There was an old style ticket booth with two attendants. There was a popcorn machine and a sweet counter. The decor of the place looks fab with a retro 50's kind of vibe. Complete with chrome, glass and tiled floors. Best of all were the uniforms on the ushers. On the day I visited they were dressed in day-glo yellow dinner jackets complete with bow ties. The seats were comfortable the picture and sound quality were fine. As other travellers have mentioned the patrons are well behaved.There was no one talking or texting. All the better to enjoy the film. Highly recommended and lots of fun. If this place were to close it would be a terrible loss. Make sure you go!

A Retro and Cheap movie experience in the heart of Siam
Nov 2017 • Friends
It's hard to find a cheap place to watch a movie in Bangkok but Lido and Scala are the places for you to go. The price is so cheap when compared to tickets to other cinemas in Paragon, Central World, or Emquartier. And because it is cheap, if the movie was bad, you won't feel like you wasted a whole ton of cash. Although it doesn't look all that great, what counts is the movie, right? There are also less advertising so you don't have to watch half an hour worth of advertisements. And the sound, seats, and picture quality isn't bad at all. Pretty entertaining and comfortable. And the best part? (For me at least) Cheap popcorn!

Cinema palace for movie lover
Jul 2017 • Friends
This is simply cinema complex with 3 cinema room with standard equipment.
I enjoy seeing film here as the audience here is mostly movie lover, the group of the audience have proper etiquette.
Great ticket price, Great quality sight and sound.
PS toilet is free for the cinema customer just show your movie ticket to the staff.

Favourite Cinema
Aug 2017 • Friends
The Apex Lido and Scala are my favourite cinemas in Bangkok. They are old and basic but screening quality and sound are both excellent. They often screen arthouse and foreign language films with both Thai and English subtitles. They offer the best ticket prices in town at 120 and 140 baht with discounted rates on Wednesday and 100 baht tickets for the 10:00 am screenings on Saturday and Sunday.

The only cinema go to now
Jul 2017 • Solo
Scala and Lido are gems in a modernized 4D packed expensive Bangkok. The four Siam cinemas breathe a lot of character the way they have not been tampered with since their original design. It's charming, inexpensive.

You don't have to wait long for the movie to start; only 2-3 advertisement are previewed. Very enjoyable. It's almost a cinema arthouse that play plenty of international and critically acclaimed sundance style films.

Hope they never demolish this place
