Question: Connecting a 2016 MacBook Pro to a 2009 Cinema Display

I have a 2016 MacBook Pro (13", touchbar, 500GB) and I want to connect it to the Cinema Display from 2009. I bought a usb-c to Mini-Display adapter to connect it but it doesn't show anything on the Display. I've used the Cinema Display with a 2014 MacBook Air before and it worked fine. Does anyone know why it won't connect? My guess is that the Cinema Display is too old or something.


I've read that to connect the Cinema Display to a MacBook you need a Mini-Display not a thunderbolt 2 adapter, which is what I've bought according to the website.


Usb-c to Mini-Display adapter:

I have the USB cable in as well but that doesn't change anything on the screen, still black. It does allow me to use the power button on the cinema to control the computer so it has some sort of contact. Do you think the problem can be that the computer and the screen are to far apart in technology or something?
