Thailand Cinema

As far as I am concerned the Thai Movie Houses in Bangkok are up with the best in the world usually part of a mall and normally about 3-4 dollars a film make it a value for money day out. There are dozens of movie theatres around town showing Thai, Chinese, Indian and Western movies. The majority of films shown are comedies and shoot-em-ups, with the occasional drama slipping through. These theatres are air-con and quite comfortable, with reasonable rates (80B to 140B). All movies in Thai theatres are preceded by the Thai royal anthem. Everyone in the theatre is expected to stand respectfully for the duration of the anthem.

Movie ads appear daily in both The Nation and the Bangkok Post, listings in The Nation include addresses and program times. Bangkok Metro magazine will carry details of film festivals or other special events when they are scheduled. Check out the Major Cineplex Website Here! It has addresses, times and info on all the latest movies.

Foreign films are often altered before distribution by Thailand's board of censors; usually this involves obscuring nude sequences, although gun fights are sometimes also edited from the film. Film buffs may prefer the weekly or twice weekly offerings at Bangkok's foreign cultural clubs. French and German films screened at the cultural clubs are almost always subtitled in English. Admission is sometimes free, sometimes 30B to 40B. For addresses and phone numbers see the Cultural Centres section in this chapter.
