Old BKK hands with more interest also outside the Silom area likely know about so-called ''suck-cinema's,, of which there are a few in this big city.

One of these in Chinatown was the Rama/Prince (that is, if I remember and locate it well, I am not really a fan of it), closed since some years.

In the latest issue of TIME-OUT BKK, a free (and quite thin compared to same magazine for Euro-cities) magazine for tourists was a report about a newly opened hotel in this building, named Prince Heritage (www.princeheritage.com), adress CharoenKrung 441, with retro-style and rooms from a low 500 bt.The bar is still cinema-themed, as it says, but most likely not in the style of its latest actions!

BTW-its a remarkable thing that former gay places seem to shun any interest from Thai-it seems they can only re-open in other form aimed at unsuspecting farang tourists. Thus the old MixMan sauna (across from Sake in PraNakorn) is now a hostel (dorm beds), a short-lived M2M massageshop in a Silom sideroad is ditto, the former K-Male (in far away Don Muang/Bang Khen) is very nicely renovated and looks like a boardinghouse-but all closed off. Former massageshops like 88 in Nonthburi and the Bank and Seed are empty and for rent/sale-since quite some years-apprently not takers for that!

This thread is not to be confused with The Prince Massage in Suan Phlu.

 

Prince Rama is in Bangrak, not China Town. In August 2017, it was a construction side:

On the subject of gay/porn/sex cinemas, the Laem Thong in Rama 4 near Klong Toey market has been demolished last month. State cinema in Samrong is closed (and nearby Safe House sauna as well). Now there are only 3 left: Chinatown Rama, Hawaii (near Wongwian Yai) and Phahon Theater in Saphan Khwai.

 

I was not aware that Time Out Bangkok is a free magazine, where can I get it?

 

Former gay venues remaining vacant. Indeed, Seed in Ramkhamhaeng Soi 53 has been empty since they closed in 2015 (?), Vincent's in Soi Ngam Duplee since they closed in 2015 (?).
