Scala Cinema: A Thai Eye Candy Interior Design

It is one of the locations where the award-winning and well-admired coming of age Thai movie – Love of Siam – was shot.  That is why when I got the opportunity to visit Bangkok for the second time, I did not hesitate to check it out.  Thanks to Red “Tarquata” Juacalla (a devoted fan of Mario Maurer) for letting me search the actual location prior to going to Bangkok.

 I just hope the Thai people know and realize the grand beauty of the interiors of Scala Cinema.  I am not an authority in interior or architectural designs but when I stepped into the magnificent lobby of this movie palace located in the bustling area of Siam Square, I was totally moved.  It is a living witness to the stylish and elegant cinematic movie-watching era of the Thai people.

The lobby design is of 60’s-era European-feel interiors that is totally visually captivating that can topple other modernized Thai interior designs in Bangkok.  I personally believe that it is a Thai icon and architectural crown jewel that should be preserved and maintained.  You don’t need to watch a movie to enjoy Scala Cinema in Bangkok. 

Climbing up the grand marble stairs and seeing the regal interior ornaments – gold flower-like accents on the ceiling, the massive 5-tiered chandelier, and the out of the ordinary design of the wooden ticket booths – is already a glorious experience.  It will definitely meet the standards of the Thai royalties.  I may be exaggerating but being inside the lobby of Scala is a mesmerizing treat of visual fortification!
