  • The Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter is only for Thunderbolt devices. The MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt but the MacBook does not. Also, the Thunderbolt adapter does not pass DisplayPort signals. The Apple Cinema Display is a DisplayPort monitor (mini DisplayPort), so you need a USB-C to mini DisplayPort adapter (and a mini DisplayPort cable if the mini DisplayPort connector is female). Or you could use a USB-C to DisplayPort adapter and a DisplayPort to mini DisplayPort cable.
