Prince Theater ปรินซ์ราม่า in Bangkok Bang Rak

The theater is currently (visit 26 and 29aug2017) being gutted, construction work inside, but the walls will remain. 
13°43'14.3"N 100°30'59.7"E = 13.720633, 100.516591 
Accessible from Charoenkrung road or Sri Viang road; 
between BTS Saphan Taksin and State Tower.   


Pictures of interior through gaps/holes in the corrugated iron or wall:



Best point for viewing is the car park of State Tower:

http://seatheater.blogspot.com/2009/08/prince-theater-bangkok-thailand.html "However, before you get your hopes up, be forewarned that in its present state the showing of films is only done to provide a faint light source for the men enjoying themselves on the inside." 

Pak Nam Rama ปากน้ำราม่า in Samut Prakarn 

An accidental find, I drove past on Sukhumvit by bus or car and noticed a large building that looked like a cinema, requiring further research on a separate trip.
13°36'07.5"N 100°35'52.8"E = 13.602083, 100.598000 
About 50 m east of Sukhumvit road, near BTS E19 Pak Nam (station complete 22nov2017 but not open to public).




All openings closed and locked, I couldn't see a way to get in. The area around the cinema is freely accessible and used as paid parking.

No article in http://seatheater.blogspot.com/search/label/Thailand - Samut Prakarn but mentioned three times with pictures (search for "Pak Nam Rama").

  1. Hi Christian,

    Any ideas if SEED internet in Ramkhamhaeng re-opens? Or any places like that to recommend??

    1. Seed Ramkhamhaeng is gone and there is no similar place that I know of. However Nake sauna in Happyland (no relationship to Seed as far as I know) often has my type. By coincidence, Nake sauna is only about 20 m away from original location of Seed (Happyland, then moved to Ramkhamhaeng).
