Lights out

20180602-01lidoold school

Bye, bye Lido Multiplex.  Opened for operations since 1968, this standalone cinema turned out the lights for the last time on 31 May 2018.  The movie theater played a pivotal role during my teen-age years for I probably had my first movie dates there.  For a certain generation, it was meeting spots for more than just a movie and popcorn.  Many tutoring schools and educational establishments were in the area, so it became the hub for adolescent trends and fashions.  If you want the latest in-things, you can find it at shops behind the theaters.  Now the lights is off and the marque is left blank,  . . .so bye, bye Lido, thanks for the memories.

Sala Chaloem Thani or the Nang Loeng Cinema, is the original wooden cinema in Thailand.  Built in 1918, the cinema showed films for over 75 years until it’s closing in 1993.  It’s a landmark in the city’s cultural tour due to it’s proximity to Nang Loeng Market.
