    No. Source: apple support document HT207266 "About the compatibility of the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter". Not only will it not work with the MacBook at all, it does not work with the non-thunderbolt Cinema Display at all, since neither one is a Thunderbolt product.

  • I found my answer. This won't work on the MacBook.

    "The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter isn't compatible with MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015) and later."

    As stated in the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter compatibility document HT207266
