“One of the large old-time movie theaters in the area that closed due to competition from more modern venues at nearby shopping centers. In March, 2004 it was torn down. Mackenna was one of the big old theaters in the Crucible of Construction. Along with Scala and Lido in nearby Siam Square, it was one of the large, old-style theaters where big movies opened. With the advent of smaller, modern luxury theaters in upscale shopping centers, it could not compete, as Mackenna is a stand-alone theater not near any shopping area. After it closed as a theater, it served for a short time as a snooker hall. No word on what will replace it. Mackenna was developed by the Poolworaluk family (they control Entertain Golden Village Co Ltd – EGV)."
