The historic facade of an art deco theater from Bangkok’s golden age of cinema was being demolished this morning, according to a video taken from the scene.

Weeks after film geeks and movie-goers learned that the beloved theater Scala would be turned into a shopping mall, footage posted late this morning showed its demolition has begun.

“You said you would keep it, didn’t you?” read the video’s caption by Foto_momo, a page archiving Bangkok’s modernist architecture. 

In early September, mall developer Central Pattana Group announced that it would retain as much as possible of Scala’s original structure. Many of its architectural features and decor had in fact been relocated to Pattaya by cinema owner Apex.

Calls to Chulalongkon’s Property Management office and Central Pattana Group went unanswered.
